Summary

Future amount (mm) of snow on the ground in March (averaged over 2076-2095) simulated with the MC1 dynamic global vegetation model (Bachelet et al. 2001) at a 4 km x 4 km spatial resolution using future climate projections provided through CMIP3 (http://www-pcmdi.llnl.gov/ipcc/about_ipcc.php). Future climate drivers were generated using statistical downscaling (simple delta method) of general circulation model projections, in this case Hadley CM3 (Johns et al. 2003) under the A2 emission scenario (Naki?enovi? et al. 2000). The deltas (differences for temperatures and ratios for precipitation) were used to modify PRISM 4km historical baseline (Daly et al. 1994). Note: The MC1 model is described in data basin (http://databasin.org/climate-center/features/mc1-dynamic-global-vege [...]
