Publication Date

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 (RCP8.5). The dataset is intended to represent typical total annual precipitation expected for the year 2030. Detailed documentation for all of the UMass climate datasets is available from: http://jamba.provost.ads.umass.edu/web/lcc/DSL_documentation_climate.pdf [...]

Purpose

This dataset represents projections of the total average annual precipitation (mm/year), based on an ensemble of global climate models, a single greenhouse gas concentration scenario (RCP8.5), and downscaling to approx. 600 m resolution using PRISM climate data from 1981-2010. The dataset is intended to represent typical total annual precipitation expected for the year 2030.
