Summary

Baseline (1961-1990) average summer total precipitation and projected change in precipitation for the northern portion of Alaska. For the purposes of these maps, ‘summer’ is defined as June - August. The Alaska portion of the Arctic LCC’s terrestrial boundary is depicted by the black line. Baseline results for 1961-1990 are derived from Climate Research Unit (CRU) TS 3.1.01 data and downscaled to 2km grids; results for the other time periods (2010-2039, 2040-2069, 2070-2099) are based on the SNAP 5-GCM composite using the AR5-RCP 8.5, downscaled to 2km grids.

Purpose

This collection of maps summarize historic baseline (1961-1990) and projected relative change in average summer total precipitation (presented as percent change from baseline). Baseline results for 1961-1990 are derived from Climate Research Unit (CRU) TS 3.1.01 data and maps for future time periods are based on a composite of projections from five GCMs (CCSM4 - National Center for Atmospheric Research, Community Earth System Model 4, United States; GFDL-CM3 - NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, Coupled Model 3.0, United States; GISS-E2-R - NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, ModelE/Russell, United States; IPSL-CM5A-LR - Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace, France; MRI-CGCM3 - Meteorological Research Institute, Coupled General Circulation Model version 3.0, Japan) under the AR5-RCP 8.5.
