From the Post: "Oregon state climatologist George Taylor noted that sea ice in some areas of Antarctica is expanding and part of the region is getting colder, despite computer models that would predict otherwise. 'The Antarctic is really a puzzle,' said Taylor, who writes for the Web site TSCDaily ... 'A lot more research is needed to understand the degree of climate and ice trends in and around the Antarctic ... '"

George Taylor is the state climatologist, and is a faculty member at OSU's College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences.
"The Weather Channel wants to use the data to improve their local forecasts, and the accuracy of its weather maps," said George Taylor, an OSU atmospheric scientist who serves as the state climatologist for Oregon. "There has been a great deal of demand for the data, not only from federal agencies, but from the business community, private researchers and the general public," Taylor said.
"When we first put the data on our website," Taylor said, "we had more than a million hits in our first year."
In addition to their extensive U.S. mapping projects, Daly and Taylor have 2-kilometer grid data for western Canada, China, Mongolia, Puerto Rico, American territories, and parts of Europe.
David Hannaway, OSU Professor of Crop and Soil Science, has collaborated with Daly and Taylor to use PRISM mapping to better assess the climatic suitability for growing various types of grasses and crops in China.
Taylor and Daly are in constant contact with state, national and international climatologists who help them tweak their model to account for local variations.
"In the old days, a climate map would last for 20 years," Taylor said with a laugh.
