Stevens, A., R.M. Horton, D.A. Bader, C. Rosenzweig, A.T. DeGaetano, and W. Solecki, 2014: Climate Change in New York State: Updating the 2011 ClimAID Climate Risk Information Supplement to NYSERDA Report 11-18 (Responding to Climate Change in New York State). NYSERDA Report 14-25. New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.

Based on advances in physical understanding and a new set of more complex climate models and more powerful computing, the climate risks chapter (Horton et al. 2011a) of the ClimAID Report (Rosenzweig et al. 2011) is updated here. Specific advances include:

A probabilistic approach to sea level rise that includes additional components (e.g., gravitational and other effects on regional sea level caused by ice sheet changes, and storage/extraction of water on land).

Use of higher spatial resolution climate models that include new features such as how vegetation may respond to temperature and precipitation change.

Additional observed data reflecting the post Irene and Sandy era.

Updated information about our physical understanding of extreme events. The new climate models generally have a higher spatial resolution and include more diverse model types (Knutti and Sedlacek 2012). While these advances yield some changes in the results relative to the original ClimAID work, these changes are generally small relative to the uncertainties involved in long-term projections. As a result, this update amplifies many of the messages of the original ClimAID report.
