The Marshallese Traditional Agroforestry Calendar combines climate data and traditional season designations and knowledge about the harvest times of perennial crops throughout the year. Months are displayed in Marshallese on the outer ring, while inner rings show how wind and rain patterns and the harvest of two crops typically change throughout the year. The color gradients show the intensity of the harvest or the climate variable, with more intense colors representing larger amounts harvested or higher amounts of rain, for example, at various times. A web-based tool offers two versions, depending on the status of ENSO conditions. Source: adapted by Victor Garcia, Jr., from Friday et al. 2017.6b796ac8-b5ee-4bda-9adc-cd4513019050
