10-minute Future Climate Grids
Future climate projections from the World Climate Research Programme's (WCRP's) CMIP3 multi-model dataset are statistically downscaled using the CRU CL 2.0 20th century climate dataset. The CMIP3 multi-model datasets also were used by the IPCC for the 4th Assessment Report.
Download projected future climate grids by emission scenario (a1b, a2 or b1), climate model (e.g. BCCR BCM2.0), variable (temp=temperature or prec=precipitation) and year (1975, 2050 or 2090).
The downloadable data sets on this page are in a GZIP compressed tar file format (.tgz). If using Windows, you may need to use a third party file archiver, such as 7-Zip (www.7-zip.org) to unzip and uncompress these.
Further description of the data is available here.
The downscaled datasets available here were produced with suport of the University of Wisconsin Department of Geography, the Nelson Institute's Land Tenure Center, and Conservation International.
