Research listed on this page includes books or book chapters, white papers, reports, journal articles and other documents that Skagit Climate Science Consortium (SC2) scientists cite or use.
Definitions that describe the scientific review processes for the various types of reports can be found here. Not all completed SC2 referenced documents are included here. If you would like further information that you cannot find, please contact Carol MacIlroy or one of the scientists.
The Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington has an extensive and searchable database that includes papers and other climate related documents broader than the Skagit basin and is an excellent resource.
