Tuesday February 26, 2019. 11:00 AM.  High-Resolution Climate Projections: Connecting Global Change to Local Impacts.  Katharine Hayhoe, Texas Tech.  Sponsored by EOAS and the Rutgers Climate Institute. Event flyer here.

Abstract: Climate change is no longer a distant issue: its impacts already affect many aspects of life on this planet. Ensuring that our infrastructure, our resources, and the economy are prepared for future changes requires an understanding of what those changes will look like. Developing high-resolution projections that are relevant to local impacts, however, is a challenging task. Using practical examples from our work across the U.S., I will discuss and compare the statistical models and methods used to translate global climate model output into local to regional-scale climate information that can be used to inform climate-resilient long-term planning for cities, water districts, land management, and more.
