Weather suitability for mountain pine beetle outbreaks in whitebark pine forests, 2010-2099, Northern Rockies Study Area

Metadata Updated: June 15, 2024

Estimates of weather suitability for the occurrence of mortality in whitebark pine from mountain pine beetles as determined from a logistic generalized additive model of the presence of mortality as functions of the number of trees killed last year, the percent whitebark pine in each cell, minimum winter temperature, average fall temperature, avverage April-Aug temperature, and cummulative current and previous year summer precipitation. Analysis done at a 1km grid cell resolution. Weather suitability index calculated by summing the weather terms in the model. Calculated for 2010 through 2099 based on numerous downscaled data under several emissions scenarios. GCMs include: BCC, CanESM, CCSM, CESM, CESM-BGC, CMCC, CNRM, Had-CC, Had-ES, and IPSL. RCPs vary from 2.6 to 8.5 depending on run. GCM/RCP combination is listed in the filename. Data are a list of points in comma separated text format. Point coordinates are the center of each 1km grid cell. GCM data from the NASA NEX DCP30 data base
