Abstract

This document includes maps of historical and projected changes in climate and hydrology for the Nooksack River watershed.  Projections are from Integrated Scenarios for the Future Northwest Environment. This set of projections were developed by Mote et al. 2015, which are derived from the 2013 IPCC report. Projections are shown for two time horizons (2050s and 2080s) and for a low (RCP 4.5) and high (RCP 8.5) greenhouse gas scenario. Projections are included for the following climate and hydrologic variables:

  • Average Winter Temperature
  • Average Summer Temperature
  • Maximum Winter Temperature
  • Maximum Summer Temperature
  • Minimum Winter Temperature
  • Minimum Summer Temperature
  • Winter Precipitation
  • Summer Precipitation
  • April 1st SWE
  • May 1st SWE
  • Summer Water Deficit
  • Total Winter Runoff
  • Total Summer Runoff
