New Publication: Selecting and Using Climate Change Scenarios for British Columbia

PCIC is pleased to present "Selecting and Using Climate Change Scenarios for British Columbia", now available for download from our publications library.

This PCIC report is intended to assist those engaged in climate change impact, vulnerability and adaptation analyses by providing guidelines on how to choose climate scenarios, including the choice of appropriate spatial and temporal scales of the data and methods to use.

Although the focus is on British Columbia, much of the material is applicable to regional climate change scenarios in other regions and it builds upon the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) guidelines for use of scenarios. The report discusses scenarios from the IPCC Fourth Assessment and includes descriptions of tools for data access that are readily available in BC.
