Summary

To evaluate the potential effects of climate change on wildlife habitat and ecological integrity in the northeastern United States from 2010 to 2080, a University of Massachusetts Amherst team derived a set of climate projections at a fine spatial resolution for the entire Northeast. The projections are based upon publicly available climate models.This dataset represents the mean of the maximum air temperature (degrees C) for June, July, and August for the year 2010 using one of two IPCC greenhouse gas concentration scenarios (RCP8.5). The dataset is intended to represent typical summer temperatures in the decade centered on 2010 rather than the actual temperatures during 2010. MAP UNITS ARE TEMP. IN DEGREES C MULTIPLIED BY 100 (which [...]

Purpose

This dataset represents the mean of the maximum air temperature (degrees C, multiplied by 100) for June, July, and August projected for the year 2010, based on an ensemble of global climate models, a single greenhouse gas concentration scenario (RCP8.5), and downscaling to approx. 600 m resolution using PRISM climate data from 1981-2010. The dataset is intended to represent typical summer temperatures in the decade centered on 2010 rather than the actual temperatures during 2010.
