Climate Change Projections
This project will use downscaled climate data to generate projections for relevant climate parameters, such as temperature and precipitation. The colored domains in the figure below represent distinct climate zones and are outlined in red, yellow, and green. They blue line represents the Upper Snake River Watershed.
Below are Climate Projections for the YELLOW Domain of the Upper Snake River. Cli-mate variables presented include: average annual temperature (1950-2100), average annual precipitation (1950-2100), mean seasonal temperature (2040-2069), and mean seasonal precipitation (2040-2069). These climate variables are shown in their histori-cal amounts and in future scenarios, including: a greenhouse gas reduction scenario (RCP 4.5) and a “business as usual” greenhouse gas emission scenario (RCP 8.5).
