Research at the Climate Impacts Group (CIG) has made significant contributions to our understanding of Pacific Northwest (PNW) climate variability and change. Key findings from this research include the following.

Future climate in the Pacific Northwest

The CIG applies the most updated global climate models to determine the regional effects on temperature and precipitation:

Regional climate model projections

The CIG strives to boost the resolution of global climate models to determine the regional effects of a changing climate, with the following results:

Projections of extreme events

The CIG has examined how global climate change may change the frequency and intensity of extreme events in the Pacific Northwest:
