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 minimum air temperature (degrees C) for December, January, and February using one of two IPCC greenhouse gas concentration scenarios (RCP8.5). The dataset is intended to represent typical winter temperatures in the decade centered on 2060 rather than the actual temperatures during 2060. MAP UNITS ARE TEMP. IN DEGREES C MULTIPLIED BY 100 (which allows [...]

Purpose

This dataset represents the mean of the minimum air temperature (degrees C, multiplied by 100) for December, January, and February projected for the year 2060, 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 winter temperatures in the decade centered on 2060 rather than the actual temperatures during 2060.
