Scale-free BC climatologies/monthly data/derived index data

Description:

ClimateBC utilizes historical weather station data and global circulation model regional predictions to project future seasonal and annual climate variables in BC. ClimateBC extracts and downscale PRISM and ANUSPLIN generated monthly data for the reference period (1961-1990), and calculates seasonal and annual climate variables for specific locations based on latitude, longitude and elevation. It also downscales historical (1901-2013) and future climate data sets (2020s, 2050s and 2080s) generated by IPCC AR5 climate models.
