Climate summary variables reconstructed in high resolution for past and projected futures. We took detailed microclimate measurements across three mountain ranges in West Texas to identify key topographical drivers of microclimate variation, and modeled future fine scale climate as a function of topography and projected regional weather across multiple future scenarios.
Downscaled climate projections at 800m spatial resolution for the north central United States based on the Multivariate Adaptive Constructed Analog (MACA) method from selective CMIP5 modelsImtiaz Rangwala & Candida F. Dewes
This dataset provides downscaled climate projections at 800m spatial resolution for nine ecologically-relevant climate variables for the north central US region between 35.5N-49N latitude and 88W-118W longitude from 12 Coupled Model Intercomparison Project - Phas 5 (CMIP5) climate model simulations (6GCMs x 2RCPs) which are downscaled using the Multivariate Adaptive Constructed Analog (MACA) method. These projections are available as five different (approximately) 30-year climate normals between 1950 and 2099 as monthly values, except for Aridity...
