Growing Season Degree Days for Northeast, Projected for 2040, RCP 8.5, Ensemble GCM Results

Dates

Publication Date

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 growing season degree days (number of days in which the average temperature is > 10 degrees C) using one of two IPCC greenhouse gas concentration scenarios (RCP8.5). The dataset is intended to represent typical growing season degree days for the year 2040 rather than the actual growing season degree days. MAP UNITS ARE THE SUM OF DEGREES THAT EXCEED 10 DEGREES [...]

Purpose

This dataset represents the growing season degree days (number of days in which the average temperature is >10 degrees C) projected for the year 2040, 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 growing season degree days for the year 2040 rather than the actual growing season degree days.
