USGS Derived Downscaled Climate Projection Portal - Now Available!

Release Date:

The Derived Downscaled Climate Projection Portal ("Derivative Portal") is now available for use!

The Derived Downscaled Climate Projection Portal ("Derivative Portal") is now available for use! This web portal allows visualization and downloading of future climate projections from a group of "statistically downscaled" global climate models (GCMs). Temperature and precipitation projections from these models have been used to calculate derivative climate indicators that measure the number of days that exceed certain thresholds.

Data can be found at: http://cida.usgs.gov/gdp/

For more information about the project that led to the creation of the two portals, "Development and Dissemination of High-Resolution National Climate Change Dataset", please visit: https://casc.usgs.gov/projects/#/project/5050cb0ee4b0be20bb30eac0/4f833ee9e4b0e84f608680df

The development of the Derivative Portal, along with the Geo Data Portal, was supported by the National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center.
