Link to Data in Data Basin. These data sets from the California Academy of Sciences show climate projections (temperature and precipitation) for all four seasons. From the California Academy of Sciences' metadata (for a precipitation projection): Using the simple anomaly method (modifying a historical baseline with differences or ratios projected by General Circulation Models), scientists from the California Academy of Sciences downscaled monthly total precipitation from 16 different global circulation models (GCMs). The GCMs were described in the latest Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC 2007) and archived at the WCRP PCMDI ( http://www-pcmdi.llnl.gov/ipcc/about_ipcc.php). Monthly total precipitation...
This data set is distributed through the Conservation Biology Institute's Data Basin site: http://app.databasin.org/app/pages/datasetPage.jsp?id=5a1a66e950534fd095dee1a68a8c6f61 From the metadata: "This dataset shows the predicted change in average precipitation between historical (1961-1990) and future (2070-2099) time periods, simulated by the dynamic global vegetation model MC1 under the Hadley climate change projection and the anthropogenic emissions scenario A2. Change in precipitation (per ~ 8 km pixel) is depicted as a ratio of the average precipitation for 2070-2099 / the average for 1961-1990. Data values above 1 represent a projected increase in precipitation and values less than 1 represent a projected...
These are web links to a folder in Data Basin, containing simulations of future vegetation types. From the description in Data Basin: "The dynamic global vegetation model MC1 was run for the North American continent using historical and future climate projections to simulate vegetation shifts, carbon gains and losses, hydrological flows, and wildfires. This work has not been published yet and should be considered as not peer reviewed. Note that we have added a file as an attachment to this gallery to provide the list of vegetation types that are simulated by the vegetation model and the category number that is associated with each type. When using the identify tool this will be useful to match number and name...
This data set is distributed through the Conservation Biology Institute's Data Basin site: http://app.databasin.org/app/pages/datasetPage.jsp?id=e2d159c08cd7463b9fcf8e5d8ae66740 A description from the metadata: "This dataset shows the predicted rise in temperature between historical (1961-1990) and future (2070-2099) time periods, simulated by the dynamic global vegetation model MC1 underthe Hadley climate change projection and the anthropogenic emissions scenario A2. Temperature change (in degrees C) was calculated by taking the difference between the simulated future average monthly maximum temperature and the historical average monthly maximum temperature per ~ 8 km pixel. Background: The dynamic global...
