Coastal and Marine Visualization Tools for the U.S. Arctic and Alaska

Project Overview

Dates: December 2011—June 2013


Primary Scientists: 

Sarah Trainor, ACCAPJohn Walsh, ACCAP, IARC

To date climate downscaling in Alaska has been focused on terrestrial areas.  This work provides important new data relevant to off-shore and coastal locations impacted by variations in surface temperature, winds, and sea ice. We have developed a quantile-mapping algorithm and applied this to daily historical fields and climate model output for the Alaska region.

SNAP and ACCAP develop data analysis and visualization tools to aid the study of interrelated systems, improve decision making, manage resources, and inform policy. Explore and analyze historical data and SNAP climate projections with this set of dynamic presentation tools powered by R and Shiny.
