California Climate Change Portal

The California Climate Change Portal is a virtual research and information website for climate change mitigation and adaptation resources and information pertinent to the state of California. Information from the California Energy Commission's Climate Change Program Office, the PIER Program's climate change research unit, and other state agencies is combined and represented through the portal,  including the impacts of climate change on California and the state's policies relating to global warming.

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.

Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT) 3.0

This risk assessment tool assists drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater utility owners and operators in understanding potential climate change impacts to the water sector; assessing related risks at their utilities; and evaluating adaptation options. CREAT allows users to perform these analyses using scenario-based decision making in multiple time periods using pre-loaded data and downscaled local climate information.  CREAT can support utilities in initiating adaptation planning and provides suggested customizable adaptation strategies that can be implemented at the user’s utility.

Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) - Regional Models

Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) Climate Working Group created and maintains regional, down-scaled global climate models to demonstrate how Wisconsin's climate has been changing and project how it might change in the years to come. A number of methods have been developed to derive detailed regional and local climate data in order to evaluate the potential impacts of climate change by incorporating landscape features, water bodies, or other characteristics that may influence regional or local climate into global models.

Santa Clara Valley Water District Climate Change Portal

This web portal allows users to search for reports and other technical literature on the subject of climate change. Although focused on the Santa Clara Valley in California, the portal draws from state, local, and national reports from across the country and is thus useful to state and local governments across the country. Users can search for reports based on topics (including adaptation), date, and keyword. There are also special links to reports and websites on sea-level rise, groundwater, and climate change.

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecasting

The Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecasting program provides western states and Alaska with information on future water supplies (January - June for the current year). USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service field staff collect and analyze data on depth and water equivalent of the snowpack at more than 1,200 mountain sites and estimate annual water availability, spring runoff, and summer streamflows. Individuals, organizations, and state and federal agencies use these forecasts for decisions relating to agricultural production, fish and wildlife management, municipal and industrial water supply, urban development, flood control, recreation power generation, and water quality management.

Nature Conservancy Coastal Resilience Program

A program from The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Coastal Resilience is dedicated to providing information to communities, planners, businesses and policy makers to help them integrate sea-level rise and coastal hazards into their decision-making, and mitigate both community and natural resources vulnerabilities. The program consists of an approach, a web mapping tool, and a network of practitioners around the world supporting hazard mitigation and climate adaptation planning.
