  • Climate Change for Water Resource Managers Workshop (Boulder Project)

    -
    Workshop

    Workshop briefed participants on the NOAA-funded project to assess the climate change vulnerability of the City of Boulder's water resources. [Boulder, Colorado]

  • Forecast Verification Workshop

    -
    Workshop

    In order to gage forecast quality, users must know the accuracy and skill of forecasts--whether seasonal climate forecasts or water supply forecasts. This workshop introduced participants to the basics of forecast verification statistics using water supply forecasts. Presenters included NRCS forecasters, NOAA Western Regional personnel, and NOAA CBRFC forecasters. [Boulder, Colorado]

  • Climate Change Modeling for Front Range Water Providers

    -
    Workshop

    WWA organized an educational workshop for the Front Range water providers to cover the fundamentals and differences of GCMs, emissions scenarios, downscaling techniques, and hydrology modeling. [Denver, Colorado]

  • Climate and Tourism Workshop

    -
    Workshop

    Tourism and recreation in the West are a large part of the economy and are strongly linked to climate.  This workshop focused on the development of a strategic research agenda to assess the economic, socio-cultural and environmental implications of climate extremes, variability and change for sustainable tourism. [Boulder, Colorado]

  • Front Range Water Provider Climate Change Workshop

    -
    Workshop

    WWA co-sponsored a workshop with Denver Water to allow interaction among Front Range water providers on how different entities are planning, or might plan, to deal with climate chang- related impacts. This workshop was attended by water managers from Aurora, Westminster, Denver Water, Thornton, CWCB, Colorado Springs Utilities, Northern Water, and others. [Golden, Colorado]

  • Climate Change and Variability in the San Juan Mountains

    -
    Workshop

    October 11-13, 2006

    WWA co-sponsored a conference with the Mountain Studies Institute to facilitate information-sharing and interaction between scientists and local stakeholders regarding the implications and potential impacts of climate variability and change in the San Juan Mountains region. A second goal was to begin development of a San Juan Mountain (SJM) Climate Initiative, a climate research and outreach program. [Durango, Colorado]

  • Water, Drought and Wyoming's Climate

    -
    Workshop

    WWA co-sponsored an all day workshop hosted by the University of Wyoming and others dedicated to understanding how climate variability and change impacts Wyoming’s water resources. This workshop was in Laramie, WY. 

  • Climate and Drought Forecasting - WY

    -
    Workshop

    Topics:  NOAA/CPC operational climate seasonal forecasts, the NOAA-USDA Climate Monitor, Klaus Wolter's Southwest Experimental Seasonal Forecasts,  and CDC experimental 6-10 day and 8-14 day intra-seasonal climate forecasts. [Cheyenne, Wyoming]

  • Climate and Drought Forecasting - CO

    -
    Workshop

    Topics:  NOAA/CPC operational climate seasonal forecasts, the NOAA-USDA Climate Monitor, Klaus Wolter's Southwest Experimental Seasonal Forecasts,  and CDC experimental 6-10 day and 8-14 day intra-seasonal climate forecasts. [Golden, Colorado]

  • Colorado River Basin Water Year 2005 Outlook Briefing

    -
    Workshop

    WWA co-sponsored a water supply briefing for Colorado River stakeholders focused on seasonal hydroclimatic outlooks for the Water Year 2005. The briefing (1) provided an assessment of current and projected climate conditions and water availability impacting the lower and upper Colorado River Basin: (2) described the various forecast tools available for seasonal climate and hydrologic predictions; and (3) established a protocol to provide regular updates of these forecast products to interested stakeholders.
