Project Title: 
MCAP Climate Data Project

This project will develop dynamically downscaled climate data for the state of Minnesota. The objectives are:

  • Generate future climate data at a ~3-mile resolution through the year 2100 using the most recent global climate models (CMIP6). Using dynamical downscaling techniques, the researchers will model variables such as precipitation, temperature, soil and lake temperature, etc. 
  • In partnership with U-Spatial, develop an interactive visualization of these climate model projections to help Minnesotans access and use these data in their climate adaptation planning and decision-making
  • Develop Extension programming, training, and other communication resources to help a range of end-users understand, use and apply these data.
