Summary

One of the leading models for helping to understanding temperature and precipitation –PRISM—Parameter-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model—is used in Alaska and parts of Canada as input data in projections that seek to describe future scenarios of change.Currently no PRISM data are available for Northwest Territories. Researchers will develop fine scale PRISM data – 800 meter grids— for the territory. With common data across the region, scientists can better compare scenario planning across the boreal forest. The project is a collaboration among the NWB LCC, the Northwest Territories government, Agriculture Canada and Oregon State University.
