Animations and Presentation Materials

Summary:

This is a collection of GIF-format animations and PNG images that are suitable for presentations. These products include images for the baseline period (1961-1990) and images for each decade between 2010 and 2090.  Baseline values are derived from Climate Research Unit (CRU) TS 3.1. or TS 3.1.01 data; values for future time periods are based on the SNAP 5-GCM composite under the AR5-RCP 6.0 and AR5-RCP 8.5. CRU and GCM data are provided courtesy of Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP).

Air temperature is expressed in units of Celsius (°C) and Fahrenheit (°F) and precipitation is available in units of millimeters (mm) and inches (in).

Special note about animations: The first image of the animation is an introduction slide. Because an audience may need some time to read the introduction slide, we have included a five-second (5s) delay between this introduction slide and the following image. Subsequent image transitions happen at three-second (3s) intervals.
