Designing a distributed regional climate impacts model for the PNW (I): Assembling a target list of policy relevant questions

The seminar will focus on the first stage of designing an integrated regional climate impacts model for the PNW. We will first discuss a summary of our discussion from our annual meeting of June 13, 2002 (compiled by ELM), making corrections and additions as necessary. Then we will focus on Rick Palmer's blockbuster question as follows: What are the 10-12 basic questions we want to answer in five years with our integrated model?
