Updated Climate Maps

New versions of the Climate Projection Maps and Animations are now available. This collection of products summarizes baseline and projected temperature and precipitation. The animations and maps are focused on the northern portion of Alaska. Graphics were created by Arctic LCC staff using climate data provided by Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP). Baseline results for 1961-1990 are derived from Climate Research Unit (CRU) TS 3.1 or TS 3.1.01 data downscaled to 2km grids; results for the other time periods are based on a composite of projections from five Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) CMIP5/AR5 General Circulation Models under representative concentration pathway (RCP) scenarios RCP 6.0 and RCP 8.5, downscaled to 2km grids.
