    • The SimCLIM Open Framework System http://www.climsystems.com/ A flexible, integrated modelling system for assessing climate change impacts and adaptation that runs on a personal computer
    • SimCLIM can be used to:
      • Perturb climate files
      • Describe baseline climates
      • Examine current climate variability and extremes
      • Assess risks – present and future
      • Investigate adaptation – present and future
      • Create climate change scenarios
      • Conduct sensitivity analyses
      • Examine sectoral impacts
      • Examine uncertainties
      • Facilitate integrated impact analyses
    • Advantages of the SimCLIM modelling approach
      • climate data perturbation capacity
      • quick running and flexible
      • spatial and temporal analyses
      • multi-scale - national, regional, sites
      • easily updated
      • training uses
      • facilitates interdisciplinary collaboration
      • Windows operating system
    • Multi-scale Open Framework System You can add your own data! http://www.climsystems.com/
    • Sample Interfaces/Outputs http://www.climsystems.com/ Texas: 2050 Precipitation scenario with county boundaries and major rivers displayed
    • Sample Interfaces/Outputs http://www.climsystems.com/ Northeast Texas (Roads and State Parks): Precipitation scenario for 2050 SimCLIM supports ensemble GCM development and interfaces with many commonly used GIS platforms
    • Sample Interfaces/Outputs http://www.climsystems.com/ SimCLIM for the USA comes preloaded with time series data. Data can be easily uploaded and ingested into SimCLIM USA from the Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCN)
    • A Client’s Critical Review: Overall Technical Value
      • 1. No equivalent PC-based product with this functionality and robust product suite. 2. The system is easily installed, very intuitive and is an integrated one-stop place to do your work. 3. PC functionality is essential when we sit down with a client to discuss Global Climate Change impacts on their operations. 4. A client would not need to spend additional time to run separate programs for each of the Tasks in a project.  They would be seamlessly integrated. 5. The data are totally transparent and viewable by the current tools.  No need to run a separate interface to "find the data" you are using to run a model. 6. The system has very powerful image viewing capability without the ArcGIS overhead and learning curve, but has Arc export features. 7. The system runs fast, has not crashed, and is very intuitive.
    • A Client’s Critical Review: Technical Bottom Line
      • 1. SimCLIM offers the opportunity to teach climate change impact and adaptation assessment concepts with real-world data and in locations of relevance to the United States education market.
