Climate Change Building Blocks

Palmer, R.N., M.W. Wiley, A. Polebitski, B. Enfield, K. King, C. O'Neill, and L. Traynham. 2006. Climate Change Building Blocks. A report prepared by the Climate Change Technical Subcommittee of the Regional Water Supply Planning Process, Seattle, WA.

Abstract

This report, prepared by the Climate Change Technical Subcommittee of the Regional Water Supply Planning Process, identifies 13 fundamental statements on what climate change means for Puget Sound (Washington) water resources and water supply management. The blocks, which build on eachother in sequential order, were discussed and agreed upon one at a time by all members of the Climate Change Technical Subcommittee and form the foundation for assessing climate change impacts to major Puget Sound water suppliers.
