Once registered, we will email you more details of the event. If you have any questions please email awshackathon@agu.org

The Challenge: Climate change and my city: Visualizing climate-analogs

This challenge focuses on the creation and visualization of climate-analogs for cities around the world with populations over 1M. Climate-analog analyses identify contemporary analogs for the future climates projected for a given city.  Climate-analog analysis is a place-based and comparative approach to understanding and assessing the magnitude and potential effects of climate change.

Challenge #1:

What apps would you build if you had access to climate projections for the rest of this century at the scale of individual cities?

Challenge #2:

How would you visualize these climate projections to effectively engage policy makers, managers, planners, educators and the general public?

 

Register today! Space is limited.
