Climate Impacts Research at the University of Washington, 1995-2005

Through innovative scientific research on how the Northwest’s natural resources are affected by predictable climate variations, the Climate Impacts Group (CIG) at UW has provided inestimably valuable services to the region and has guided resource managers toward more informed decisions. The CIG outlines here how it would build on this foundation of basic and applied research, increasing its value to a region uniquely well suited to becoming more “climate-wise”.

Preparing for Climate Change: A Guidebook for Local, Regional, and State Governments

A.K. Snover, L.C. Whitely Binder, J. Lopez, E. Willmott, J.E. Kay, D. Howell & J. Simmonds
Preparing for Climate Change: A Guidebook for Local, Regional, and State Governments is designed to help local, regional, and state governments prepare for climate change by recommending a detailed, easy-to-understand process for climate change preparedness based on familiar resources and tools. The guidebook was co-authored by the Climate Impacts Group, King County (Washington) Executive Ron Sims, and King County ‘s climate team. ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability is a contributing partner and is distributing the guidebook...

Links between Pacific basin climatic variability and natural systems of the Pacific Northwest

Z.M. Gedalof
This thesis is composed of three principal chapters, each describing a distinct line of inquiry: (1) Five paleoproxy reconstructions of Pacific Basin climatic variability are examined in order to identify the extent to which these records provide a coherent signal. A composite chronology of these records is well correlated with the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) index, and provides a better record of PDO variability than any of the constituent chronologies back to 1840. This record...

Statistical downscaling techniques for global climate model simulations of temperature and precipitation with application to water resources planning studies

A.F. Hamlet, E.P. Salathé & P. Carrasco
This chapter and related materials for the Columbia Basin Climate Change Scenarios Project were produced by the Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington in collaboration with the WA State Department of Ecology, Bonneville Power Administration, Northwest Power and Conservation Council, Oregon Water Resources Department, and the B.C. Ministry of the Environment. The project report, data and other information can be accessed at the Columbia Basin Climate Change Scenarios Project website.

Markov model studies of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation

S.D. Johnson
Aspects of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation are investigated using statistical models derived from observational data sets of surface and subsurface temperature in the tropical Pacific Ocean. Topics examined include: the existence of a seasonal cycle in the unforced internal dynamics of the sea surface temperature (SST) anomaly field; useful forecasting information contained in the subsurface temperature anomalies not reflected in SST; Geographical patterns of SST anomaly and subsurface temperature anomaly that lead to highest growth...

Impacts of Climate Variability and Change, Pacific Northwest

P.W. Mote, D.J. Canning, D.L. Fluharty, R.C. Francis, J.F. Franklin, A.F. Hamlet, M. Hershman, M. Holmberg, K.N. Ideker, W.S. Keeton, D.P. Lettenmaier, L.R. Leung, N.J. Mantua, E.L. Miles, B. Noble, H. Parandvash, D.W. Peterson, A.K. Snover & S.R. Willard
Climate variations in the past have had a tremendous impact on the course of human history, at times allowing one civilization to flourish and at other times driving another civilization to migration or collapse. Even in this century, droughts and floods have crippled one region after another. Adding to these natural variations in climate, it now appears that humans have embarked on a global-scale modification of Earth’s climate by substantially changing the composition of the...

Regional Climate and Hydrologic Change in the Northern U.S. Rockies and Pacific Northwest: Internally Consistent Projections of Future Climate for Resource Management

J.S. Littell, M.M. Elsner, G.S. Mauger, E.R. Lutz, A.F. Hamlet & E.P. Salathé
Planning for the effects of climate change on natural resources often requires detailed projections of future climate at finer spatial scales consistent with the processes managers typically consider. While it is numerically possible to produce downscaled climate at very fine scales (< 5km), accurate estimation at these scales is difficult and less certain without very detailed local information. Both the absence of a sufficiently dense network of long-term climate observations and the presence of local...

Chinese Funerary Biographies: Chinese Texts

Patricia Buckley Ebrey, Ping Yao & Cong Ellen Zhang
This text is an online supplement to Chinese Funerary Biographies: An Anthology of Remembered Lives, edited by Patricia Buckley Ebrey, Ping Yao, and Cong Ellen Zhang (University of Washington Press, 2019), containing the original biographies in Chinese.

Xinjiang and the Modern Chinese State

Justin Jacobs
Xinjiang and the Modern Chinese State views modern Chinese political history from the perspective of Han officials who were tasked with governing Xinjiang. This region, inhabited by Uighurs, Kazaks, Hui, Mongols, Kirgiz, and Tajiks, is also the last significant “colony” of the former Qing empire to remain under continuous Chinese rule throughout the twentieth century. By foregrounding the responses of Chinese and other imperial elites to the growing threat of national determination across Eurasia, Justin...
