Chicago Community Climate Action Toolkit

The Field Museum's Chicago Community Climate Action Toolkit includes over 60 multimedia tools to help communities develop and carry out local climate action projects that build on community strengths and improve quality of life. The tools available document the experiences of community partners, present the basics of climate science as they relate to the Chicago, Illinois region, and provide ideas for local climate action.

Hazards - United States (Hazus)

Hazards-United States (Hazus) is a nationally applicable standardized methodology that contains models for estimating potential losses from earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes. Hazus uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology to estimate physical, economic, and social impacts of disasters. It graphically illustrates the limits of identified high-risk locations due to earthquake, hurricane, and floods. Users can then visualize the spatial relationships between populations and other more permanently fixed geographic assets or resources for the specific hazard being modeled, a crucial function in the pre-disaster planning process.

Modeling Bird Distribution Responses to Climate Change: A mapping tool to assist land managers and scientists in California

This site allows users to see current and future maps of bird species distributions, vegetation, or climate variables.   Using sophisticated species distribution modeling techniques, this site presents current and potential futures for bird communities in California based on different climate model outputs. Future bird distributions are based on regional climate model projections for the periods 2038-2070 (IPCC Scenario A2) and 2080-2099 (IPCC Scenario A1B). Models were developed for over 80 California Partners in Flight (CalPIF) focal species, of which 60 non-special-status species are represented in this tool.

Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) and Portal

The Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) launched in November 2010 as a new National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Pathways project. It builds on the efforts of the Climate Literacy Network and the establishment of the Climate Literacy: Essential Principles of Climate Science, to steward a broad collection of educational resources that facilitate students, teachers, and citizens in becoming climate literate.

Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO)

The Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) is a tool intended to facilitate the integration of climate change science into land management planning. The overarching goal is to provide land managers with the best available science they need to effectively and efficiently sustain forests and the services they provide under a changing climate.

WEPPCAT: Water Erosion Prediction Project Climate Assessment Tool

WEPPCAT is a web-based erosion simulation tool that allows for the assessment of changes in erosion rates as a consequence of user-defined climate change scenarios. This tool is based on the USDA-ARS Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model. WEPP has a number of customized interfaces developed for common applications such as roads, managed forests, forests following wildfire, and rangelands.

Creating Resilient Water Utilities Initiative (CRWU)

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Creating Resilient Water Utilities (formally Climate Resilient Water Utilities - CRWU) initiative to assist water and wastewater utilities in preparing for climate change. CRWU offers a suite of tools and resources to promote the understanding of climate science, associated risks to the water sector, and pertinent adaptation options for utilities and communities to implement. EPA designed the CRWU resources to translate complex climate projections into usable formats - to assist in building a more resilient water sector.
