This tool – and the science behind it – were designed to help users explore the basic question: when and where could climate change matter for Pacific Northwest planning, operations and decision making?
To help introduce the tool, we’ve developed two descriptive tours of the website, crafted from the perspective of two types of imagined users.


The Time of Emergence project was conceived and funded by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Climate Preparedness & Resilience programs & U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-Region 10. Methodologies and stakeholder engagement were developed and implemented by the University of Washington's Climate Impacts Group. The Time of Emergence online tool was developed with support from the Center for Data Science, University of Washington-Tacoma.
