BLM REA COP 2010 Average Annual Temperature (2045-2060) Simulated by RegCM3 with ECHAM5 Projections as Boundary Conditions (Western US)

Summary

Average Annual Temperature (2045-2060) simulated by RegCM3 with ECHAM5 projections as boundary conditions. Units are degrees Celsius. These data were generated by the regional climate model RegCM3 with boundary conditions from a GCM future climate projections. The data were downscaled statistically by calculating differences (anomalies) between the RegCM3 results with GCM-driven boundary conditions for 1968-99 and those for a future period, in this case 2015-2030. The anomalies were added (temperatures) or multiplied (precipitation) to a climate baseline from PRISM (Parameter-elevation Regressions on Indepenent Slopes Model - prism.oregonstate.edu) data based on historical observations. The PRISM baseline was calculated as average [...]
