About This Item
This geocoin is part of a statewide geocaching outreach project started by Montana State University and the Montana Institute on ecosystems to celebrate the launch of the Montana Climate Assessment (MCA), a scientific document published in September 2017. The document, which you can view at http://www.montanaclimate.org, includes climate information about Montana's water, forests and agriculture.
One MCA geocoin will be launghed in every Montana county. How many can you find?
One thing that interested me about Daniels County, found in the northeastern part of the MCA, was that our temperature shifted upwards the second most in the last few decades (average .47 degrees per decade warmer from 1950 to 2017). Rising temperatures will reduce snowpack, shift historical patterns of streamflow in Montana, and likely result in additional stress on Montana’s water supply, particularly during summer and early fall, which effects us nationally.
