Data Servers Serving up MACA

Google Cloud

  • The gridded 1/24-deg(4km) MACAv2-METDATA dataset is available on the Google Cloud.

  • GeoData Portal

  • The gridded 1/24-deg(4km) MACAv2-METDATA dataset is available on the Geo Data Portal(GDP). The GDP provides tools on their site for the subsetting or area-averaging of MACA data. See introduction

  • North Carolina State Climate Office

  • The gridded 1/16-deg(~6km) MACAv2-LIVNEH dataset is available on North Carolina Climate Office's THREDDS server. Historical (1950-2005) and Future (2006-2099)

  • Northwest Knowledge Network (University of Idaho)

    The MACA website provides specific directions on how to access the MACA data on NKN:

  • The gridded 1/16-deg(~6km) MACAv2-LIVNEH dataset
  • The gridded 1/24-deg(4km) MACAv1-METDATA dataset
  • The gridded 1/24-deg(4km) MACAv2-METDATA dataset
  • Climate Tools Using MACA

    PINEMAP Decision Support Tool

  • The gridded 1/16-deg(~6km) MACAv2-LIVNEH dataset is being used/visualized in the decision support tools provided by the Pine Integrated Network: Education, Mitigation, and Adaptation Project (PINEMAP) for studying planted loblolly pine forests in the Southeast US.

  • Climate Engine Tool

  • The gridded 1/24-deg(4 km) MACAv2-METDATA dataset is available on the Google Cloud in both daily/monthly formats. Though Climate Engine does not currently serve up this data, it will have MACA as an added product very soon.

  • Regional Approaches to Climate Change(REACCH) Decision Spport Tools

  • The gridded 1/24-deg (4-km) MACAv2-METDATA dataset is being utilized by the REACCH project to create a set of decision support tools for dryland farmers on the Palouse in the Pacific Northwest. These tools feature a climate dashboard and visualization of past,present,short term and long term future climates and a tool for accessing locations of crop suitability(now and in the future) using cold hardiness zones.

  • Earth System CoG

  • The gridded 1/24-deg(4 km) MACAv1-METDATA dataset was available as a dataset on the Earth System CoG tool. This was a project out of NOAA to attempt to get many downscaled datasets as well as training datasets in one common area so that on-the-fly comparisons could be made.
  • Climate Change Studies Using MACA

    Seattle Public Utilities: Water Management

  • The gridded 1/16-deg(~6km) MACAv2-LIVNEH dataset was bias corrected to station locations along the Tolt and Cedar River watersheds to be used by Seattle Public Utilities with their Hydrocomp hydrologic model in investigating the effects of future hydrologic changes on their management of water for the City of Seattle, Washington, USA.

  • Portland Water Bureau: Drinking Water Management

  • The gridded 1/16-deg (~6-km) MACAv2-LIVNEH dataset was bias corrected to a modified Livneh dataset for 20 grid cells covering the Bull Run watershed. This data will be used by Portland Water Bureau using the Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) hydrologic model to investigate ithe effects of future hydrologic changes on the management of drinking water for the City of Portland, Oregon, USA.

  • Southern Nevada Water Authority:

  • The gridded 1/24-deg (4-km) MACAv1-METDATA dataset is being used to analyze future projections of available ground water in the Great Basin National Park area in order to look at the feasibility of a pipeline from the region to Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.


    Regional Approaches to Climate Change(REACCH)

  • The gridded 1/24-deg (4-km) MACAv1-METDATA dataset is being utilized by the REACCH project to run crop modelling with CropSyst to look at future effects (growing conditions, pests, weeds, earth worms,etc) on wheat growing regions in the Pacific Northwest, USA.

  • Northwest Climate Science Center Project: Integrated Scenarios of the Future Northwest Environment

  • The gridded 1/16-deg (~6-km) MACAv2-LIVNEH dataset is being utilized by the University of Washington as climate data to be input to two hydrologic models: the Variable Infiltration Capacity(VIC) model and the Unified Land Model (ULM) to provide gridded future hydrologic data for the Western United States.
  • The gridded 1/24-deg (4-km) MACAv1-METDATA dataset is being utilized by the Conservation Biological Institute as climate data to be input to two vegetation models: the MC2 dynamic global vegetation cover model and the 3-PG(Physiological Principles Predicting Growth) forest growth model to provide gridded future vegetation data for the Western United States.
