UC Berkeley’s Geospatial Innovation Facility — with support from the Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) agency — has developed a climate adaptation planning tool it is calling “Cal-Adapt” [cal-adapt.org.]? The tool models climate change scenarios in a mapping format, including projections through 2099 for factors such as wildfire risk, sea-level rise and flood risk,? temperature fluctuation, and even snow pack. ? It is particularly interesting to explore the many microclimates that California offers.

The entire, very extensive dataset is available for download, and should keep anyone busy for a long time.
