Overview of climate indicators in CH2018

The CH2018 Climate Change Scenarios are the basis for planning climate adaptation measures. Users receive specific information on likely future climate development in Switzerland, in its geographical regions, in its cantons and for individual stations in the form of text, graphics and data.

This document aims to provide an overview of the definitions used in CH2018 because the climate indicators can be defined in different ways and the set of indicators covered in CH2018 has been expanded since these climate scenarios were published. This is to avoid confusion and inconsistencies and to provide an overview of all available indicators.
