CLIMAS (Climate Assessment of the Southwest) Project

PI: Jonathan Overpeck
Institution: University of Arizona
Additional Investigators: Gregg Garfin
A growing part of the University of Arizona-based CLIMAS (Climate Assessment of the Southwest) Project is focused on providing regional stakeholders and decision-makers with up-to-date assessments of possible future climate change. We request data assess in order to bring the latest IPCC AR4 simulations into this assessment effort. We will consider all climate fields of interest to stakeholders in the region, particularly those related to temperature and precipitation, but also including evaporation and others. We will focus on climate means, as well as changes in extremes. The primary region of interest is the Southwest U.S. (including Arizona and New Mexico, as well as southern Utah, Colorado and Nevada), plus adjacent northern Mexico. The results of our analyses will be included in scholarly publications, white papers for Arizona and New Mexico decision-makers, web products designed for scientific and stakeholder use, and other publications of use to decision-makers in the region – such as our monthly “SW Climate Outlook” web and print publication.
