Assessment Methods, Products and ToolsDevelopment of new methods and tools for climate and weather impacts assessment builds bridges between NCAR's geophysical sciences and impacts research, and facilitates dialogue between academics and practitioners. Climate scenario development, statistical and GIS methods, and simulation tools - all are actively developed and deployed by ISSE's staff and collaborators.

The projects listed below have Assessment Methods, Products, and Tools as their primary research theme.


"Because the pathway to sustainability cannot be charted in advance, it will have to be navigated through trial and error and conscious experimentation. The urgent need is to design strategies and institutions that can better integrate incomplete knowledge with experimental action into programs of adaptive management and social learning."
