Mean winter (January – March) minimum temperature, 2076-2095, Hadley CM3 A2, 4 km resolution

Jun 2, 2012
Future winter (January – March) minimum temperature (°C, averaged over 2076-2095) at a 4 km x 4 km spatial resolution using future climate projections provided through CMIP3 (

Future climate drivers were generated using statistical downscaling (simple delta method) of general circulation model projections, in this case Hadley CM3 (Johns et al. 2003) under the A2 emission scenario (Naki?enovi? et al. 2000). The deltas (differences for temperatures and ratios for precipitation) were used to modify PRISM 4km historical baseline (Daly et al. 1994).
