    Hurricane Season Flood Alert System (Opens in a new Window)

    The Hurricane Season Flood Alert System (HSFAS) is based on forecasted precipitation amounts and seeks to provide communities with flood warning services as a key climate change adaptation and public safety tool. Alerts are provided to communities that have Flood Risk Mapping Studies (FRMS) or have published intensity-duration-frequency (IDF) curves from which precipitation-based flood triggers can be derived. The HSFAS is operational during the peak hurricane months of June to December, and provides alerts for 45 communities.

    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.
