Urban Climate Adaptation Tool

The Urban Climate Adaptation Tool (Urban-CAT) is under development. A prototype should be available and provided online soon. While you're waiting, read Jack Fellows's blog on Urban-CAT. Jack, the Director of the Climate Change Science Institute at Oak Ridge National Laboratory - an ECEP Partner, is leading the team developing the first version of Urban-CAT for use by decision makers in Knoxville, TN. In his blog, Jack describes the drivers behind the app's development and future intended uses.
