Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA)

JAWRA is a publication on multidisciplinary water resources issues. JAWRA papers present ideas derived from multiple disciplines woven together to give insight into a critical water issue, or are based primarily upon a single discipline with important applications to other disciplines. Papers often cover the topics of recent AWRA conferences such as riparian ecology, geographic information systems, adaptive management, and water policy.  .

Learn More About Climate - Climate Change and Colorado's Future

An initiative of CU-Boulder's Office for University Outreach in the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies, LearnMoreAboutClimate.colorado.edu seeks to 1) extend the University's vast scientific expertise to raise awareness about climate change; 2) inspire an informed dialogue about climate change among Coloradans; and 3) encourage Coloradans to make lifestyle changes that contribute to the health of our state and planet.

Lessons Learned from Delaware Lidar

A case study of Delaware's efforts to obtain LiDAR elevation maps of its coastline and the lessons that can be learned from the process, this short report may be useful to other states or localities looking to assess impacts from sea level rise and storm surge using LiDAR technology. After describing Delaware's need for LiDAR data in its coastal planning process, the authors address the specific lessons the state learned. These lessons relate to the need for properly scoping and defining a LiDAR mapping project, the need for data standardization, and the need to ensure that end users (in this case, planners) are sufficiently competent with information systems to put the elevation data to good use.

Local Land Use Response to Sea Level Rise

This report summarizes selected local land use ordinances and regulations that include specific mention of sea level rise or that incorporate appropriate policy responses that may be used to address sea level rise. While developed for The Nature Conservancy Long Island, it is a useful resource for any coastal state.

Pacific Northwest Climate Maps

The Climate Impacts Group (CIG) provides these maps to show how four important parameters of climate - temperature, precipitation, snowpack, and soil moisture - vary over time in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) as a result of natural climate variability and climate change. These maps show climate anomalies associated with different patterns of climate variability compared to average conditions during 1915-2003. The data are derived from historical climate measurements, global climate model simulations, and a spatially-distributed hydrology model.

PRECIS Regional Climate Modeling System

PRECIS stands for "Providing Regional Climates for Impacts Studies". This regional climate modeling (RCM) system was developed at the Hadley Centre at the UK Met Office, and is designed to run on a PC under Linux. PRECIS (pronounced PRAY-sea) helps generate high-resolution climate change information for as many regions of the world as possible, in order to support the generation of climate change scenarios for scientific and planning needs, such as impact and vulnerability assessments.

Planning and Facilitating Collaborative Meetings (NOAA Training)

Provided by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management, this two-day instructor-led course is designed to increase participants’ ability to plan and facilitate a meeting (or a series of meetings) that minimize conflict and enhance problem solving. Collaboration is often cited as a good way to address coastal resource management issues, but the collaborative process is complicated, requiring a systematic approach. This course provides the skills and tools to design and implement collaborative approaches.
