FGDC GeoPlatform Website

The Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) GeoPlatform website provides access to federally-maintained data and resources related to coastal flooding, sea level rise, and their impacts. The website also provides data from government partners (state, tribal, regional and local) and non-governmental organizations. Platform users can access available data and share customized maps through web browsers and mobile applications.

ECHAM - Atmospheric general circulation model

ECHAM is an atmospheric general circulation model, developed at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology. It forms the atmospheric component of the MPI-ESM. The ECHAM development branched from an early (ca 1987) version of the global numerical weather prediction model developed at the ECMWF, and has since been continually developed at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorolgy. The ECHAM source code is freely available to the public at large.

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.

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).
