NC CSC STAFF PRODUCES CLIMATE PRIMERS FOR PARTNERS

The Climate Primers are a set of customizable graphics that can be produced for a region of interest to provide a summary of the trends, seasonal and spatial patterns in both historic and the most recent high resolution climate model projections.   We have made these tools available to our partners as well as members of funded projects and plan to fully automate production in the near future so that they could be publicly available.  These tools have been extremely useful to our partners at the National Park Service (NPS), members of our funded projects, and the Northern Rockies Adaptation
