Preparing for Climate Change in the Pacific Northwest

PI: Cynthia Peacock
Institution: University of Washington
Additional Investigators: Philip Mote, Eric Salathe
Abstract:
The purpose of this work is to analyze scenarios related to our region, along with state climate data, so that these utility companies (King County and Portland General Electric), which rely on heavily on hydroelectric power, can begin to prepare for adaptations necessary in a changing climate. We are most interested in using data from MPI ECHAM5, NCAR CCSM3 and PCM, UKMO HADCM3 and HADGEM1 models.
