How is the climate of the Canadian Prairie Provinces going to change in the coming decades?
The Prairie Climate Atlas answers this important question by providing you with detailed, state-of-the-art yet easily understood information about our region’s changing climate.
By scrolling down, you will be guided through the ongoing story of prairie climate change. Feel free to interact with the maps and graphics as they appear.
The Prairie Climate Atlas
This is an interactive website that includes climate data, geovisualizations, and multimedia. Come back often, as this site will be updated frequently.
The Atlas is the flagship project of the Prairie Climate Centre, which is a collaboration between the University of Winnipeg and the International Institute for Sustainable Development.
This is a research and outreach project with the explicit goal of making the best climate science available to a broad spectrum of society.
For the general public this will hopefully communicate the severity of climate change and the urgent need for action. For scientists, policy makers and local leaders, the information available will contribute to adaptation and mitigation planning.
