Parameter-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model (PRISM)

Developed at Oregon State University, PRISM is a unique knowledge-based system that uses point measurements of precipitation, temperature, and other climatic factors to produce continuous, digital grid estimates of monthly, yearly, and event-based climatic parameters. PRISM is a knowledge-based system developed primarily to interpolate climate elements in physiographically complex landscapes. Continuously updated, this unique analytical tool incorporates point data, a digital elevation model, and expert knowledge of complex climatic extremes, including rain shadows, coastal effects, and temperature inversions.

Washington Department of Ecology Clearinghouse: Impacts, Preparation, Adaptation Resources

The Washington Department of Ecology developed a central clearinghouse to store resources with scientific and technical information related to the impacts of climate change on different sectors in Washington. Resources in the clearinghouse are generally organized by the same sectors within the statewide adaptation plan, the '2012 Washington State Integrated Climate Change Response Strategy' (which also is reviewed in this Clearinghouse). Efforts to maintain and expand the clearinghouse help address several recommendations made in the 2012 Strategy.

NOAA Coastal County Snapshots

From NOAA's Office for Coastal Management, this website provides the capability to view flood exposure by county for U. S ocean and Great Lakes coasts. Snapshots detail a county's demographic, infrastructure and environment within the flood zone. The Coastal County Snapshots provide “snapshots” or short reports on the topics of a county’s: Flood Exposure, Ocean Jobs or Wetland Benefits. The snapshots offer county-level facts, and easy-to-understand charts and graphs that describe complex coastal data.

Puget Sound Watershed Management Assistance Program

The Puget Sound is a coastal/inland waterway in Washington state, and is considered to be one of the most ecologically diverse ecosystems in North America. The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Puget Sound Watershed Management Assistance Program supports the protection and restoration of Puget Sound aquatic resources in areas threatened by development. These grants are given to local and tribal governments and special purpose districts. The grants support the development of land use management tools to manage and minimize the effects of population and economic growth on water quality and aquatic habitat.
