Dataset: CIG Northern US Rockies and Pacific Northwest Statistical Downscaling/Historic/1916-2006 Climatology/Columbia River/Historic
Data type: GRID
Naming Authority: cses.washington.edu
summary: The goal of this project was to (1) develop consistent historical and future downscaled climate and hydrologic data and projections using the same methodology for several major river basins in the western United States (Columbia, upper Missouri, upper Colorado, and Great Basins) and (2) summarize that information in forms consistent with the needs of the funding agencies. This report describes where to get the information developed as well as the methods, results obtained, uses of and uncertainties associated with the data and projections.
