Pileus Project – Climate Science for Decision Makers

Date of publication unknown

The overarching purpose of the Pileus Project is to provide useful climate information to assist decision makers. The current focus is on two leading industries in the Great Lakes region: agriculture and tourism.

The benefits of the Pileus Project include:

  • Provide a better understanding of historical climate trends, variability, and their past impacts on people and industry
  • Evaluate how future climate trends and variability may impact people and industry, using newly developed, climate-related models
  • Create an economic framework, which explicitly incorporates climate into the decision making process
