Absolute change in annual average temperature (Image Service)

Metadata Updated: December 3, 2018

This raster contains absolute change in annual average temperature values. Data are ensemble mean values across 20 global climate models from the CMIP5 experiment [Taylor et al., 2012], downscaled to a 4km grid. For more information on the downscaling method and to access the raw data used to create this dataset, please see Abatzoglou and Brown, [2012] and the Northwest Climate Science Center.We used the MACAv2-metdata monthly minimum and maximum temperature datasets. Average temperature was calculated as the arithmetic mean of minimum and maximum temperature datasets. Average temperature was averaged over water years (1 Oct to 30 Sept). Absolute change values are the difference between the mean historical (1975-2005) and future (2071-2090, RCP8.5) annual average temperatures. Units are degrees Celsius.More information on the project associated with this dataset is available from the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station, including detailed metadata; these raster data are available for download here.
