    Description

    The Intermountain Adaptation Partnership (IAP) region is characterized by extreme temperatures and precipitation; it is home to some of the driest, hottest, and coldest locations in the conterminous United States. The region has numerous mountain ranges, high-elevation basins and valleys, and low-elevation mesas and canyons. Climate is influenced by this diverse and complex terrain. The IAP region is bounded on the eastern side by the Rocky Mountains and on the western side by the Sierra Nevada. For this region, moisture comes predominantly from the Pacific Ocean, and consequently much of the moisture occurs as orographic precipitation in the mountains.
