Abstract:

Maintaining and increasing the capacity to perform training exercises on Department of Defense DoD lands is essential to future force readiness and effectiveness. The risk of heat related illness on ranges as a potential result of climate change is one factor affecting the availability of training areas. Assessing the impact of future climate change is an essential part of ensuring future availability of live fire ranges. This document describes the process of executing the Range Days Lost to Heat Risk Model, as it exists at the time of this writing, within the common computational environment established under the software integration effort of the Integrated Climate Assessment for Army Enterprise Planning work package.
