GIS : Environmental Issues 2 - Climate Change
Climate Change Resilience
Brian Rizzo of Environment Canada (Ottawa) in this video talks about "Modeling the Impacts of Climatic Change on Terrestrial Ecosystems : A GIS Application". Using a GIS and a statistical package, climatological and ecological data were manipulated, integrated, analysed and displayed producing a scenario of Canada's ecosystems under greenhouse warming. Verbyla of Idaho University discussed the potential use of GIS in local climate warming forest research. This presentation discusses the changes forest managers should expect at the local scale and the advantage of a GIS approach.
