Here you can view and download temporal variability of indicators for a specific point.
Climate impact indicator is an observed or projected measure that indicates a 'relevant' environmental/human/economic impact that can be linked to changes in the climate. The indicators of SWICCA have been sorted into types.
Results are given for different resolutions which reflects the resolution of the impact models. Note that high resolution is not directly linked to high quality.
Absolute mean values are given so that you can compare the pan European model results with local data.
Climate change impact is given as percentage change for the beginning, mid and end century based on 30 years average for each period. Climate models can not predict single years but only statistics for long term climate.
The SWICCA scenarios of greenhouse gases are based on Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs) developed for CMIP5 and the IPCC. For most indicators the difference between RCPs are relatively small until about 2050. Later in the century the differences are more important.
Shows the coordinate for the point where you clicked in the map, for instance “53.92, 22.50” Subid is only relevant for Hype catchment resolution. The number within brackets is the subid which corresponds to the selected coordinate, for instance (9424055).
Note: In the downloaded file you will get the coordinate of the grid closest to the point where you clicked (which explains why this coordinate often differ from the selected coordinate)
You can download data for Climate Impact Indicators (CII) and time series (ECV).
When using the “Download CII” button all data in a single point for the selected Indicator will be downloaded.
An area of data for the selected indicator can be downloaded using the red button with a square . Click on this button to draw a square in the map. Then press the “Download CII” button.
If you need to redraw an area you must first delete the area you have drawn by using the trashcan , then you can draw a new area for downloading.
An Essential Climate Variable (ECV) is a geophysical variable that characterizes climate variation and change, as well as predicting the evolution of climate change on Earth. In SWICCA, we provide time-series of these variables, which can be used to derive climate impact indicators.
The time series that can be downloaded are shown in the list "Select ECV". Before you select an ECV you must select a resolution!
Press the “Download ECV” button to start the download. It is a lot of data so the downloading will take a couple of minutes.
