On this website, you can plot future projected trends in climate over central-eastern North America using downscaled climate data from the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The statistical downscaling was performed by CCR Associate Scientist, Dr. David Lorenz, and the mapping was developed by CCR Associate Director, Dr. Michael Notaro. Funding came from (1) the Michigan Department of Natural Resources through an EPA grant with the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, (2) Upper Midwest and Great Lakes Landscape Conservation Cooperative, and (3) Wisconsin Focus on Energy.
