Basic Information

This archive contains downscaled climate and hydrology projections for the United States at an 1/8th degree grid scale. Included are climate projections corresponding to two downscaling techniques (monthly BCSP and daily BCCP) and monthly hydrology projections based on the BCSP technique. The projections in the archive use three different emissions scenarios (A2, A1B, and B1) and models from 16 different modeling groups.

Parameters / Choices
A dataset often contains many geodata layers representing the same kind of measurement, but for different values of some parameters - time periods, models or scenarios, different species, etc. A value must be chosen for each such parameter in order to select a specific layer or raster which associated a single value with each geographic location (cell). The parameters or choices relevant to selecting layers from this dataset are described here.
