North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program (NARCCAP)
NARCCAP is an international program that will produce high resolution climate change scenarios over the United States, Canada, and northern Mexico, and will explore the uncertainties in regional scale projections of future climate. The project uses regional climate models nested in current and future simulations of coupled global climate models, as well as high-resolution time-slice experiments. For the RISAs, NARCCAP will provide a host of climate variables for detailed climate and climate impacts analyses and work with regional stakeholders. Details to be developed.
