The California Climate Information System (CalCIS)

Climate change is impacting California in multiple unprecedented ways that include intensifying wildfires, flood and drought, extreme heat and other challenges. The state needs scientifically robust and data driven analysis and information systems to understand trends in climate change, plan mitigation, and increase resilience. This talk will provide an overview of a project in formulation that will involve development of new remote sensing products to support the State in its climate change goals, and deliver these products through an open source, cloud-based data system.
