Atmospheric Science – Automated regression-based statistical downscaling of climate models

Atmospheric Science – Automated regression-based statistical downscaling of climate models The predictions from global or regional scale climate models are often too coarse for direct use at local scales. Statistical downscaling is a method used to predict local climate variables such as air temperature from global or regional scale models. Orhun Aydin from Esri’s Spatial Statistics Team presents a GIS-centric ...

Using GIS to Identify Strategically Important British Columbian Wave Energy Sites

Using GIS to Identify Strategically Important British Columbian Wave Energy Sites

Using GIS to Identify Strategically Important British Columbian Wave Energy Sites Selecting Wave Energy (WE) sites with minimal conflict with existing uses and marine conservation is a challenge. A multi-criteria GIS evaluation was developed to account for environmental, social, economic and technical aspects; adding/removing exclusion zones (e.g. protected areas) or altering weights of competing criteria will influence the resulting WE ...
