Climate (North America)

Map of Average temperature anomaly (trend) for the past 30 years (North America)

The following NOAA/NCEI Temperature Anomaly Map shows the trend in warming / cooling for the past 30 years (1987-2016). This should be enough of a time to see the potential geographical distribution of cooling in the USA, although it may not fully reflect the actual results of a grand solar minimum changes by geographical location.

Map of latitude areas 45°N/45°S and 30°N/30°S and 15°N/15°S

World map with 45°N/45°S and 30°N/30°S and 15°N/15°S latitudes marked. Some forecasters say that for truly cold grand solar minimum one should stay below 45°N latitude for any kind of sensible temperatures and growing season. Others say below 30°N-35°N.

Of course all this depends on so many factors (wind patterns, precipitation, average temperatures, minimum temperatures, volcanic activity, etc that is is impossible to predict anything for sure).

Also, be aware that in some areas between 30°N/15°S were deserts during the last glacial (ice age) maximum.

Resource Maps (North America)

Water

The following USGS website, Real-Time Groundwater Data, lists many locations within each state and the approximate depth to which you may have to drill to reach groundwater. A few extreme depths are located in parts of Nevada at depths greater than 800 feet while other locations are only 10’s of feet.

The following map shows the location of all the aquifers of the United States. If you are choosing a ‘retreat’ relocation, you may find it desirable to live as close as possible to a good water source, or above an aquifer – as water becomes more of a valuable commodity in our future.

Note: What these maps depict are major aquifer systems. However, there are literally tens of thousands of wells in areas not marked that are suitable for domestic water requirements – capable of producing several gallons per minute. These are shallower system dependent upon the local geology. If there is enough water to support surface streams throughout most of the year – then there is a shallow aquifer system most likely associated with it that can be used. Point of caution is to make sure your sewage is disposed of down hill/ down gradient of your well to avoid pulling the effluent into your water supply.

You can find a temperature / ecosystem biome simulator at Climate Reanalyzer, which you can use to simulate the effects of yearly temperature (say, -3C temperature drop) for glacial areas (area under snow/ice) and biomes (food growing ecosystem) changes. You can do this for various temperature changes, separately for different continents / parts of the world. NB! This is a mathematical model from University of Maine and it cannot guarantee that the results for glaciation / biomes will be what the model predicts, but it can give you some ideas for various regions/areas.
