We've collected and analyzed a series of "community climate narratives" to understand how residents and resource managers feel about climate change and its impacts to the North Shore.
Using data collected from on-site surveys delivered to visitors across the North Shore, we have estimated the economic contribution of outdoor recreation and tourism to the region's economy.
Outdoor recreation on the North Shore is dependent on hydrologic and climatic conditions. Using advanced hydroclimatic modeling, we've developed a region-specific set of hydroclimatic conditions.
The North Shore region means a lot to both local community members and tourists. Using data collected from Instagram, we're determining what the most personally meaningful activities and resources are.
The North Shore has a variety of policies designed to ensure the provision of public goods and services. We've evaluated those policies to determine whether or not they can address climate-related impacts.
After conducting nearly 2,000 surveys with visitors, we've compiled critical information on both how the region's recources are being used now as well as how use will shift as the the region's climate changes.
