PNW Hydroclimate Scenarios Project (2860)


A comprehensive database of statistically downscaled climate and hydrologic projections for the Pacific Northwest, implemented at a daily temporal resolution and a spatial resolution of 1/16th degree (~30 km2). Climate projections, derived from the CMIP3 global model archive, include results from the ten best-performing global models, three different statistical downscaling approaches, and two emissions scenarios. Results include summary statistics for nearly 300 streamflow locations in the Columbia River Basin and coastal drainages.
