Authors: Kevin Sampson, Olga Wilhelmi, Jennifer Boehnert
The Climate Change Scenarios portal (gisclimatechange.ucar.edu) provides access to the latest NCAR global climate model data. Users can view and download data in common GIS formats. The new data is available at 1° resolution as well as a statistically downscaled 4.5km version for the continental US. The easy to use climate data products use atmospheric science best practices, and the Climate Inspector webapp allows users to view and plot time-series of modeled future climate for any location.
