Navigation through this site is generally accomplished in two ways. The menu at the
top of the window let's you
jump to specific locations in the site. Some of these menus have an additional "drop-down"
menu providing additional navigation options. For example, clicking on the "Storylines"
menu item brings up an additional drop-down menu that let's you navigate to each individual
storyline. Additionally, at the top and bottom of each screen are a set of "Previous"
and "Next" links - theses take you the the preceding and next page in the site.
Also note that clicking on many of the images on the site will bring up a larger,
higher resolution version of the image in a new browser window. Close this
window to return to the original page.
Working with The Charts
This site contains numerous charts, maps, and other types of graphics. Many
of these, the charts in particular, are interactive. "Hovering" your mouse/pointing
device of the chart allows you to see the underlying data for the point(s) at the
location you are hovering. Also, because of the large amount of data used
in these analyses, the charts can initially be somewhat intimidating to interpret.
To allow you to focus in only those datasets you really want to see in the charts,
we have provided a number of filters that you can interactively turn on and off to show only those subsets of the data
you find useful.
Try it out - we've provided a sample chart below you can use to try out some of the interactive
- Most charts have predefined filters buttons for filtering the data by specific climate
and/or management scenarios.
- Clicking the "shortcut" buttons at the bottom of the chart filter the chart display
by the text indicated on the buttons. You can further filter the data displayed on
the chart by entering a search string in the "Filter" box near the bottom of the chart.
- All Charts also have a "Filter" text box that you can type a filter string into. This is an extremely helpful feature for the more complex charts
with many data series. Whatever you type in the filter box will be compared
to the legend text; only those dataseries which contain the filter text will be displayed
on the chart. Multiple filter terms can be specified; separate this terms with a space. To
filter by excluding terms, prefix the filter term with a negative (-) sign.
- You can "turn on" or "turn off" as specific data series on the chart by clicking on
the legend categories for that data series.
- "Double-clicking" on the legend category will turn "on" the corresponding data series
while turning off all the other series.
- Clicking the "Reset" button will remove all filters and reset the chart to its original
