Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP)

Overview & Applicability

SNAP provides several platforms for looking at historic climate trends and climate projections in Alaska and western Canada:

1. Downloadable datasets for historic climate data and projected climate data (temperature and precipitation).

2. Interactive map - provides climate projections for Alaska and western Canada for each decade through 2100. User can choose what variables, time periods, seasonal averages, and emissions scenarios they’d like to view.

Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP) climate projection map

SNAP provides climate projections (temperature and precipitation) for Alaska and western Canada, using an ensemble of climate models (GCMs) and 3 emissions scenarios. Information is presented in a variety of formats.

Global Carbon Atlas

Overview & Applicability

The Global Carbon Atlas gives audiences a number of ways to visualize carbon dioxide emissions and flux data, and to compare between countries and regions over time (1960 – 2012). Its products are grouped into three main categories that are intended for users with varied technical backgrounds. All products are based on current datasets and models contributed by scientists and research institutions (see Contributors).

Global Carbon Atlas

The Global Carbon Atlas lets users explore, visualize and interpret national to global carbon emissions from both human activities and natural processes.

Global Carbon Project

The goal of the Global Carbon Project is to develop a complete picture of the global carbon cycle, including both its biophysical and human dimensions together with the interactions and feedbacks between them. Their products include many user-friendly resources that give an overview of carbon sources and sinks at the national to global level.

State of the Climate, NOAA

NOAA's State of the Climate is a collection of monthly summaries recapping climate-related occurrences on both a global and national scale. They also produce a yearly report that provides an overview of global climate indicators, notable weather events, and other data collected by environmental monitoring stations.
