Abstract: It has been more than 15 years since the last Wyoming State Climate Atlas was produced. During this period, the development and marketing of natural resources in Wyoming has accelerated in order to meet the rapidly increasing demands nationally and internationally. New Federal environmental regulations and interstate litigation over water usage and rights have also prompted the requirement for a new climate atlas. Additionally, since tourism and recreation are important economic revenue sources for the state, a new atlas that focuses on this market can only enhance the image of Wyoming in a more positive way.
