Geometry Type: null

Description: Global temperature and precipitation projections for the period 2003–2100 were taken from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research dataset, which comprises a total of 20 Global Climate Model (GCM) runs, combining 4 possible future worlds of emission scenarios described by SRES (ARNELL et al., 2004) with 5 state-of-the-art climate models. The emission scenarios were developed in the mid 1990s and are based on 4 different storylines to describe consistently the relationships between the forces driving emissions and their evolution and to add context for the scenario quantification. The variables in each model include population growth, economic development, energy use, efficiency of energy use, and mix of energy technologies,respectively. A very heterogenic world with focus on family values and local traditions sets the parameters for the A2 Scenario. The climate classification comprises a total of 31 climate classes described by a code of three letters noted in the attribute table as 'GRIDCODE.' The first letter describes the main classes, namely equatorial climates (A), arid climates (B), warm temperate climates (C), snow climates (D) and polar climates (E). The second letter accounts for precipitation and the third letter for temperature classes. The Map Service author also added 3 attribute fields to decode the letters for simpler use; in the attribute table, Main Climate, Precipitation, and Temperature correspond to these original coded letters. The legend also reflects these attributes rather than the coded letters.
