The State of California has been supporting regional climate change research for more than a decade. These studies have complemented research at the national level and have been designed to inform climate policy deliberations and actions in California. This Research Catalog provides basic information about past and ongoing climate change related studies that state agencies have conducted or commissioned since the early 2000s. The purpose of this catalog is to document California’s research efforts and to facilitate the exchange of information.

  1. Climate Change and California Water Resources: A Survey and Summary of the Literature
    Lead Agency: CEC
    Principal Investigator(s): Michael Kiparsky, Peter Gleick (Pacific Institute)
    Year finished: 2004, Budget: $22,047
    Published/Product: http://energy.ca.gov/publications/displayOneReport.php?pubNum=CEC-500-04-073
    Notes
    The study reviews the projected effects of climate change on the state's water supply, delivery, and quality, and explores the economics of the related challenges.


  2. From Climate Change Spaghetti to Climate Change Distribution - Consultant Discussion Paper
    Lead Agency: CEC
    Principal Investigator(s): Michael Dettinger (Scripps/ UC San Diego)
    Year finished: 2004, Budget: $50,000
    Published/Product: http://www.energy.ca.gov/reports/2004-04-22_500-04-028.PDF
    Notes
    This study uses the resampling approach to provide a natural opportunity to objectively incorporate measures of model skill and the likelihood of various emission scenarios in future assessments.


  3. Input Needs for Downscaling of Climate Data - Consultant Discussion Paper
    Lead Agency: CEC
    Principal Investigator(s): Tom Wigley (National Center for Atmospheric Research)
    Year finished: 2004, Budget: $8,800
    Published/Product: http://www.energy.ca.gov/reports/2004-04-22_500-04-027.PDF
    Notes
    This report addresses the external data input needs for climate data downscaling with emphasis on the U.S. western region and a focus on producing high-spatial-resolution climate data for the future.


  4. Measuring and Monitoring Plans for Baseline Development and Estimation of Carbon Benefits for Change In Forest Management In Two Regions: Changing from Even-Age Management with Clearcuts To Uneven-Age Management with Group Selection Harvests
    Lead Agency: CEC
    Principal Investigator(s): Sandra Brown Et Al (Winrock International)
    Year finished: 2004, Budget: $49,980
    Published/Product: http://www.energy.ca.gov/pier/project_reports/500-04-070.html
    Notes
    This project assesses the relative biomass carbon storage potential of forest management options at two study sites representing key timber production regions in California: Sierran mixed conifers at Blodgett Forest Research Station in the Sierra Nevada and coastal redwoods at Jackson State Demonstration Forest.


  5. Quantifying Carbon Dynamics and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Agricultural Soils of California: A Scoping Study
    Lead Agency: CEC
    Principal Investigator(s): Changsheng Li Et Al (Applied Geosolutions)
    Year finished: 2004, Budget: $50,000
    Published/Product: http://www.energy.ca.gov/pier/project_reports/500-04-038.html
    Notes
    This study investigates the significant opportunity that agriculture represents for greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation projects through soil carbon sequestration and reductions of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions.


  6. Research in Support of California's Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Registry
    Lead Agency: CEC
    Principal Investigator(s): Lynn Price Et Al (LBNL)
    Year finished: 2004, Budget: $228,000
    Published/Product: http://www.energy.ca.gov/reports/2004-04-07_500-04-008.PDF
    Notes
    The purpose of the Registry is to assist California businesses and organizations in their efforts to inventory and document emissions in order to establish a baseline and to document early actions to increase energy efficiency and decrease GHG emissions.
