Assessing the Impacts of Climate Change on Wine Production in the Columbia Valley American Viticultural Area, Washington
The application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in viticulture (the study of grapes and there cultivation) is a growing field, where grape growers and researchers analyze everything from the soil suitability of a potential vineyard site to monitoring harvest output over an entire region. Climatological variables have a large impact on viticulture, and GIS has been recently applied to monitor such phenomena as temperature and precipitation in viticultural areas. My research project focuses on applying GIS to analyze future climate trends as they affect viticultural areas. I chose to focus ...
