Western Water Assessment's Intermountain West Climate Summary

The Western Water Assessment's (WWA) Intermountain West Climate Summary (IWCS) provided the latest climate information for Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming in a simple compact document aimed at water managers, planners and policy makers with water-related interests. These summaries were released approximately eight times annually starting in 2005, before the IWCS was discontinued in 2012.

EPA Region 5 Water Quality Cooperative Agreements (66.463 grants)

Administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), these grants are designed to help states, Indian tribes, interstate agencies, and other public or nonprofit organizations address water pollution. Grant recipients develop, implement, and demonstrate innovative approaches relating to the causes, effects, extent, reduction, and elimination of water pollution.

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.

Northern Hemisphere EASE-Grid Weekly Snow Cover and Sea Ice Extent

This dataset, produced by NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory, combines snow cover and sea ice extent at weekly intervals for October 1978 through August 1995, and snow cover only for January 1971 through October 1978. (Sea ice data was not available prior to October 23, 1978. ) This dataset also includes monthly climatologies describing average extent, probability of occurrence, and variance. The data are provided in a 25 km grid, in an azimuthal, equal area projection (the NSIDC NL EASE-Grid).

NOAA Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC)

The Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC), maintained by NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory, provides two datasets on precipitation. First is the monitoring product for the period 1986 to present, based on quality-controlled data from 7,000 stations. The second is the Full Data Product for the period 1951 to 2004, based on quality-controlled data from a larger number of stations (up to 43,000) with irregular coverage in time. This product is optimized for best spatial coverage and use for water budget studies.

Climate Prediction Center .25x.25 Daily U.S. Unified Precipitation

This data set is part of products suite from the CPC Unified Precipitation Project that are underway at NOAA Climate Prediction Center (CPC). The primary goal of the project is to create a suite of unified precipitation products with consistent quantity and improved quality by combining all information sources available at CPC and by taking advantage of the optimal interpolation (OI) objective analysis technique. The gauge analysis here covers the Conterminous United States on a fine-resolution and is quantitatively consistent with that covering the global land on a coarser resolution.

NOAA Climate Prediction Center Merged Analysis of Precipitation

This monthly data set, produced by NOAA's Climate Prediction Center, consists of two files containing monthly averaged precipitation rate values. Values are obtained from 5 kinds of satellite estimates (GPI, OPI, SSM/I scattering, SSM/I emission and MSU). The enhanced file also includes blended NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis Precipitation values. The other includes only the satellite estimates. Pentad data is also available.

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.

Spatial Tools for River Basins and Environment and Analysis of Management Options (STREAM)

STREAM is a spatial hydrological model that allows for assessing hydrological impacts due to changes in climate and socio-economic drivers. It is set up according to a policy analysis framework and ensures a structured approach for an entire river basin including the coastal zone.

Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program

The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program, jointly administered by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), allocates federal funds for infrastructure projects that reduce congestion and improve air quality. CMAQ funding may be used for transportation projects that reduce emissions in areas that are not in compliance with federal air quality standards or areas that formerly were not in compliance, but are now meeting those standards.
