Climate Projection Maps and Rasters

Project Summary
Project CodeALCC2011-1002
Project Lead(s) Arctic Landscape Conservation Cooperative
DescriptionThis collection of products summarizes baseline and projected temperature and precipitation. The animations and maps are focused on the northern portion of Alaska, while the underlying raster data have a much larger spatial extent covering Alaska and Western Canada (YT, BC, AB, SK, and MB). 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. Climate data are provided courtesy of Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP).
