    PLAN2ADAPT (Opens in a new Window)

    The Plan2Adapt tool generates maps, plots, and data describing projected future climate conditions for regions throughout British Columbia. It is designed to help assess climate change in regions of BC based on a standard set of climate model projections. Climate variables include temperature, precipitation, snowfall, and growing and heating degree days. Impacts of change in these climate variables are also discussed. Data can be explored based on regional districts, health authority boundaries, ecoprovinces, and forestry regions over three time periods (2020s, 2050s, and 2080s), seasonally and annually.

    Scénarios climatiques pour l'ingénierie (in French only) (Opens in a new Window)

    The Scénarios climatiques pour l'ingénierie website is a pilot project that aims to better communicate to engineers information about climate change scenarios. The website presents fact sheets for two regions of Quebec, namely Montreal and Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean, and seven climate indicators. The indicators were selected by a user committee.

    Tundra Nunavik project (Opens in a new Window)

    While most ecological studies focus on the impact of climate change on some populations or species, ecosystem-based information is needed to better predict the future state of the Arctic. The Tundra Nunavik project is a large-scale study aimed at characterizing the vulnerability of tundra terrestrial ecosystems to climate change through modelling approach. The approach combined climate modeling, climate niche modeling, and ecosystem modeling, to assess potential changes in terrestrial ecosystems of tundra of Nunavik during the 21st century
