    The Nevada Climate-ecohydrological Assessment Network (NevCAN)

    UNLV, UNR, and DRI, in collaboration with land owner agencies in Nevada, established two elevational transects of monitoring stations to collect data for long-term assessment of climate variability and change in Nevada.

    The Nevada Climate Change Project has compiled a collection of resources related to the general topic of climate change, climate research, and project development activities. These resources, though available elsewhere on this site and the Internet, are organized centrally in the project library.

Welcome To The Nevada Climate Change Portal

Seeking to provide cloud-like “research-as-a-service (RaaS)”, the focus of this project is to advance the quality and quantity of infrastructure and data collection for climate, hydrological, and ecological information pertaining to the state of Nevada. This website provides information on the Nevada Climate Change Project and access to both the NevCAN (Nevada Climate-ecohydrology Assessment Network) and climate modeling output. All information and data is publicly available for download to any person or group that seeks to use it for any purpose, be it research, education, personal interest, or otherwise.

One of the major goals of this project was to create an easily accessible, and expandable infrastructure for geospatial data (such as climate information). By providing access to real-time and archived environmental data the project significantly enhances the ability of scientists, land managers educators and students to analyze and graphically present environmental data observations.

This effort was funded by the National Science Foundation EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) program under cooperative agreement number is EPS 0814372. (2008 - 2013)
