Climate Scenarios and Projections: the Known, the Unknown, and the Unknowable as applied to California

Mar 10th, 2004 - Mar 13th, 2004

The purpose of this meeting was to discuss the likelihoods of different global climate scenarios, and how they could be effectively linked with regional projections of climate and utilized in better understanding impacts. Using California as a case study, participants explored how information such as the IPCC report (AR4) could help to inform and assess adaptation and mitigation strategies with a focus on particular sectors such as water and its management.

Keywords: climate variability and change; solutions
