System for Assessing Vulnerability of Species (SAVS) Climate Change Tool

2011

Ecologists and biologists from the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) developed a System for Assessing Vulnerability of Species (SAVS) to climate change as a tool for natural resource and wildlife managers to quantify the impacts of expected climate change on terrestrial vertebrates and inform species conservation and management planning. The SAVS climate change tool ranks species in the order of their relative vulnerability or resilience based on species data and expected changes in temperature, precipitation, and vegetation.

EPA Stormwater Management Model Climate Adjustment Tool

February 13, 2015

As part of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan Climate Resilience Toolkit, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the Climate Adjustment Tool (CAT) for EPA’s Stormwater Management Model - a downloadable online stormwater simulation model. The Climate Adjustment Tool allows engineers and planners to evaluate the performance of water infrastructure while considering future climate change projections, such as more frequent high-intensity storms and changes in evaporation rates of seasonal precipitation.

NOAA Coral Reef Watch

1998

NOAA’s Coral Reef Watch (CRW) is a decision support system providing resource managers, researchers, and other stakeholders with information on coral reef threats, primarily from climate change, to inform preparedness and response decisions. CRW uses remote sensing, modeled, and in situ biogeophysical data to offer near real-time and long-term monitoring, modeling, and reporting of conditions affecting coral reef ecosystems, especially related to coral bleaching. The information provided by the Coral Reef Watch program serves as an early warning system for coral reef changes as well as projected outlooks of coral bleaching heat stress.

Tribal Climate Change Guide

This online database is a collaboration between the University of Oregon and several partners, including the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals and the USDA Forest Service. It contains a series of resources that can support adaptation planning and initiatives related to tribes, including a list of funding opportunities for tribes seeking to address climate change, as well as a list of tribal adaptation plans. It allows users to search for other important resources, including climate programs, tribal profiles, and disaster resources.

Variable Infiltration Capacity Model (VIC)

November 19, 2014

Variable Infiltration Capacity Model (VIC) is a macro scale, semi-distributed hydrologic model that solves full water and energy balances, originally developed by Xu Liang at the University of Washington. VIC is a research model and in its various forms it has been applied to most of the major river basins around the world, as well as being applied globally.

CalEPA’s Urban Heat Island Interactive Maps

CalEPA’s Urban Heat Island Interactive Maps: The California Environmental Protection Agency has released an interactive urban heat map tool that shows heat islands throughout the state of California. Using Google Earth, the tool color codes the heat of cities according to intensity, with green at the lowest temperatures, and red at the highest. Temperatures were taken over the summer of two years—2006 and 2013. One of the outputs the map provides is an urban heat index, which quantifies the extent and severity of an urban heat island in a particular area within a city.
