The Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) is a web-based tool and information service that provides science to support integration of climate change science into land management planning.

The FSCC compares the effects of alternative management practices and wildfire regimes on carbon stores and balances in the forest (including vegetation and soil) and in forest products (including landfills and biofuels).

The Carbon Calculation Tool 2007, is a computer application that generates state-level annualized estimates of carbon stocks on forest land based. It draws on the publicly available Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data to calculate these estimates.

WaSSI is a model that can be used to project the effects of forest land cover change, climate change, and water withdrawals on river flows, water supply stress, and ecosystem productivity. Users can define custom scenarios to run through the model's online interface.

The WEPP model consists of multiple applications that can estimate erosion and sediment processes on hillslopes and small watersheds, taking into account climate, land use, site disturbances, vegetation, and soil properties.

WICCI climate scientists have down-scaled global climate models to project how Wisconsin's climate has been changing and how it might change in the years to come.
