Description and Data Access

A number of datasets of the CH2018 scenarios are available for use in impact research and practical applications. The datasets fall into two categories:

Daily time series

Two datasets contain transient daily time series of several variables at stations (DAILY-LOCAL) or on a high-resolution 2km grid (DAILY-GRIDDED). These datasets are primarily useful for research purposes and are available upon request.

The daily time series datasets are available upon request via the contact form

Average changes in mean values and indices

These datasets contain 30-year average changes in seasonal or annual mean variables (SEASONAL-REGIONAL) and indices (INDEX-LOCAL, INDEX-REGIONAL). They are geared toward practical application, especially in the context of adaptation to climate change.

They are accessible via the CH2018 web Atlas.
