Outputs


CARIWIG project outputs include both project reports (providing detailed technical information) and scientific journal publications (focussing on specific novelties achieved within the project). 

Project Reports

After the preliminary project stakeholder workshop (February 2013) a pair of complementary reports were prepared to set out the Caribbean regional-scale stakeholder perspective of the policy context and the requirements of the services and tools proposed by the CARIWIG project. These reports are the

Towards the end of the project, two reports were produced to document the dataset collection and analysis, and web service development. At present both of these documents require a login for access as they both contain scientific journal preprint information. If you do not yet have a login, please register here (which requires approximately 50 seconds). These reports are:

  • the Data Summary Report, which describes both observed meteorological data and climate model projections;
  • the CARIWIG Web Service Report which describes the tools that may be obtained through the web portal and the design of the web portal itself.

The services and data provision were evaluated and demonstrated through their use in a number of case study applications in the region across a range of sectors likely to be affected by climate change. These are documented in the following case study reports:
