Winter (Dec to Feb) Mean Temperature under the A2 Emissions Scenario (Western North America, 23 AOGCM Ensemble)

Summary

This set of 4 rasters shows winter (Dec to Feb) mean temperature (deg C * 10) for Western North America under the A2 Emissions Scenario from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). One layer shows the historic period (1961 to 1990), and there are three layers of future climate projections representing the 2020s, the 2050s, and the 2080s. These future layers are ensemble averages across all 23 CMIP3 AOGCMs (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 3 Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Models). All layers have a resolution of 1 km, and are designed to capture climate gradients, temperature inversions, and rain shadows in the mountainous landscape of western North America. These data, originally published here, were converted [...]

Purpose

This 1-km resolution dataset has been prepared for the Climate Adaptation Conservation Planning Database for Western North America (CACPD) project, funded by the Wilburforce Foundation. It is based on the Parameter Regression of Independent Slopes Model (PRISM) interpolation method for current climate, and the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 3 (CMIP3) database corresponding to the 4th IPCC Assessment Report for future projections.
