Who should use your tool?: 

FetchClimate is a fast, free, intelligent, climate cloud-based information retrieval service.

Tool Description: 

FetchClimate provides ready access to complex geographical information including, but not limited to, climatological information. On accessing the FetchClimate Azure web service, you simply need to perform four steps to find what you are looking for:

  • Draw the location on the Earth via points or grids (Where?)
  • Specify the data of interest (What?)
  • Set the timeframe, including future predictions, and a combination of averages over—or steps through—years, days, and hours (When?)
  • Fetch and view your results.

FetchClimate will choose the best data set for your query, and perform all the necessary regridding in space and time. It will return a best guess, uncertainty, and provenance for your query and display the results on the map for visual exploration. Alternatively, the FetchClimate service can be used directly via a simple API, from within programs written in any .NET language, Python, P or MatLab.

Features

  • Area selection: enables selection of single or multiple regions or points
  • Data:
    • Delivers air temperature, precipitation, and much more
    • Intelligently selects a data source for each request, or enables the user to select particular data sets
  • Time series: retrieves annual, seasonal, monthly, and daily data
  • Output: presents the results graphically or export it to CSV
  • Provides access through the web interface, a client application, or programmatically through a REST API

FetchClimate was developed by the Computational Science Lab at Microsoft Research Cambridge, in collaboration with Microsoft Research Connections and the MSTLab at Moscow State University.

Abstract

Listening for the Rain starts a pluricultural conversation in which some Indigenous people who live in the central United States of America discuss their observations and understandings of, as well as responses to, climate change and variability. A team of Native and non-Native researchers and media artists worked together to document these stories.

Abstract

EPA is working with many other organizations to collect and communicate data about climate change. With help from these partners, EPA has compiled the third edition of this report, presenting 30 indicators to help readers understand observed long-term trends related to the causes and effects of climate change. In a manner accessible to all audiences, the report describes the significance of these trends and their possible consequences for people, the environment, and society.

Abstract

Forests in northern Minnesota will be affected directly and indirectly by a changing climate over the next 100 years. This assessment evaluates the vulnerability of forest ecosystems in Minnesota's Laurentian Mixed Forest Province to a range of future climates. Information on current forest conditions, observed climate trends, projected climate changes, and impacts to forest ecosystems was considered in order to draw conclusions on climate change vulnerability.

Abstract

The Climate Change in Colorado report is a synthesis of climate science relevant for management and planning for Colorado’s water resources. It focuses on observed climate trends, climate modeling, and projections of temperature, precipitation, snowpack, and streamflow. The 2014 report is a thorough revision and expansion of the 2008 report of the same name, also produced by WWA in partnership with the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB).

Project Summary/Overview

The Low Impact Development (LID) Manual for Coastal South Carolina project is supported by years of outreach and research led by the South Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS) and South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium. The project includes key leaders in the area that serve on the LID Manual Advisory Committee, and incorporates public trainings/meetings throughout the process. The final product will be a guidance document defined and vetted by end users.

Together, these three local governments are planning for successful, resilient community adaptation to the social, environmental and economic challenges presented by climate change.

Abstract

Jack Sullivan and others give a climate change update to the Natural Resources Board. DNR staff and Dr. Tracey Holloway brief the NRB on Climate Change developments. See the tool bar above the video and image windows. "Chapters" have been added to the PowerPoint presentation which enable you, the viewer, to quickly navigate the presentation segments. Simply click-on the "slide list" icon to locate the chapters.

Abstract

The City of Keene is already practicing many climate protection strategies. Much of this document lays the foundation for Keene to move forward with a public process and further refinement of its climate change and overall sustainability goals. Another important process Keene is preparing for is a comprehensive master plan update, wherein the community, City, and other local and regional stakeholders will play a major role in setting the course for Keene’s future.

Abstract

As a coastal community located at sea level and surrounded by water on three sides, with typical land elevation only three to ten feet above mean high water, Miami–Dade County is acutely aware of the dangers posed by climate change. Climate changes, including sea level rise, increases in temperature, changes in precipitation patterns, and changes in the intensity and/or frequency of extreme events all threaten the health and safety of residents, the integrity of infrastructure, and the vitality of regional ecosystems.
