Summary

To evaluate the potential effects of climate change on wildlife habitat and ecological integrity in the northeastern United States from 2010 to 2080, a University of Massachusetts Amherst team derived a set of climate projections at a fine spatial resolution for the entire Northeast. The projections are based upon publicly available climate models. This dataset represents projections of the total average annual precipitation (mm/year) using one of two IPCC greenhouse gas concentration scenarios (RCP4.5). Detailed documentation for all of the UMass climate datasets is available from: http://jamba.provost.ads.umass.edu/web/lcc/DSL_documentation_climate.pdf . The climate work is part of the Designing Sustainable Landscapes project led [...]

Purpose

This dataset represents projections of the total average annual precipitation (mm/year) for the year 2020, based on an ensemble of global climate models, a single greenhouse gas concentration scenario (RCP4.5), and downscaling to approx. 600 m resolution using PRISM climate data from 1981-2010. The dataset is intended to represent typical total annual precipitation in the decade centered on 2020 rather than the actual precipitation during 2020.
