Climate Analogues


Working with UO Professor of Geography Patrick Bartlein and Sarah Shafer (U.S. Geological Survey, PI) the Lab is developing a web mapping application that will provide policy experts, the general public, as well as other researchers an elegant interface for accessing their cutting-edge climate research in visualization approaches for projecting future distributions of North American bioclimates.

Employing a sleek and simple design, users can click on any location in North America and see where that locations future climate is located on today’s landscape or the locations where the present climate is projected to move. The map interface is unique in that it employs an equal area projection (rather than the typical web Mercator projection) – essential for viewing this type of data.
