Thank you all for sharing!
Jennifer, yes, Teal will cover this. We can answer any question not covered in the slides at the end.
We’re defining small and medium for populations between 5-200,000.
Jennifer, downscaled means that the climate data used to prepare the climate profiles are specific to your specific city or county. The data are tailored to your community, rather than being for a larger region.
Even the most powerful computers cannot run climate models at a town-by-town resolution, so they have to do calculations for larger areas. But there are techniques that can match these regional patterns to local historical climate and then use those relationships to get a more localized perspective than what comes from the Global Climate Models.
You are very welcome!
