This dataset is one of a dozen or so datasets that provide the basis for a vulnerability assessment of the Great Northern LCC that examines land use and climate changes at landscape scales, for the full LCC boundary. It provides a measure of vulnerability based on biome velocity and using a terrestrial (moving window) anlaysis. The values range from 0 to 1 and are unitless, where Vhg = Eh x (1-Ag). The original floating point values ranging from 0-1.0 were multiplied by 100 and converted to integer format for this dataset.

It provides a measure of vulnerability based on climate velocity using a terrestrially-based analysis. The values range from 0 to 1 and are unitless, where Vvg = Ev x (1-Ag). The original floating point values ranging from 0-1.0 were multiplied by 100 and converted to integer format for this dataset.

This dataset is one of a dozen or so datasets that provide the basis for a vulnerability assessment of the Great Northern LCC that examines land use and climate changes at landscape scales, for the full LCC boundary. It provides a measure of vulnerability based on climate velocity using a watershed-based analysis. The values range from 0 to 1 and are unitless, where Vvw = Ev x (1-Aw). The original floating point values ranging from 0-1.0 were multiplied by 100 and converted to integer format for this dataset.

This dataset has been prepared for the Climate Adaptation Conservation Planning Database for Western North America (CACPD) project, funded by the Wilburforce Foundation with additional contributions from the GenomeCanada AdapTree project. It is based on Parameter Regression of Independent Slopes Model (PRISM) climate data for the 1961-1990 normal period (see http://tinyurl.com/ClimateWNA), and climate change projections of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 3 (CMIP3) database corresponding to the 4th IPCC Assessment Report for future projections.

This dataset is one of a dozen or so datasets that provide the basis for a vulnerability assessment of the Great Northern LCC that examines land use and climate changes at landscape scales, for the full LCC boundary. It is an exposure variable that represents the climate velocity (km/year) which is computed as the mean rate of change in temperature over time (future-baseline; degrees C/km) divided by the rate of temperature change over space (degrees C/km).
