    LC MAP - Landscape Conservation Management and Analysis Portal (Opens in a new Window)

    The Landscape Conservation Management and Analysis (LC MAP) Data Catalog tool includes resources for Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCC). LC MAP was originally developed by the U.S. Geological Survey in coordination with the Great Northern LCC and is broadly available for ScienceBase users to share, access, and analyze common datasets. LC MAP allows users to discover, assess, edit, analyze, and model common data themes and provides powerful geospatial analysis capabilities of ArcGIS 10 and its broad array of extensions.

    New Brunswick’s Future Climate Projections (Opens in a new Window)

    New Brunswick's Future Climate Projections contain projected change for 29 climate indices for the province over the 1980−2010 period from historical observation records and GCMs (global climate models) and climate projections for the future periods 2020, 2050 and 2080 over the 21st century under Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) 2.6, 4.5, 6.0, and 8.5 scenarios.

    NS Climate Change Data (Opens in a new Window)

    NS Climate Change Data provides climate data for various regions in Nova Scotia. Each region has historical data for a 30 year baseline period (1961 – 90) and for future projections: 2020s, 2050s, and 2080s. Climate variables include cold days, cooling degree days, temperatures. Climate Change Data can be appended for download into multiple CSV formats.

    Regional Analysis Tool (Opens in a new Window)

    The Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium's (PCIC) Regional Analysis Tool generates maps, plots and data describing projected future climate conditions for the Pacific and Yukon Region. Climate variables include temperature, precipitation, and humidity. It uses an ensemble of more than 15 Global Climate Models (GCM) and combinations of emissions scenarios provided by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Users can generate custom maps, plots and data projected to the 2020s, 2050s, and 2080s.

    Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (Opens in a new Window)

    Scenarios Network for Arctic Planning (SNAP) produces downscaled, historical and projected climate data for sub-Arctic and Arctic regions of Alaska and Canada. Other project-specific data covers much larger regions. Users can search for datasets of interest using keywords and filter datasets based on relevance, name, and date last modified. Analysis tools are also available for Alaska wildfire, climate projections, climate histories, daily precipitation, extreme weather, historical sea ice, modelled sea ice coverage, and sea ice and wind interactions.

    Seasonal forecasts (Opens in a new Window)

    Seasonal forecasts include probabilistic and deterministic forecasts as well as past climate trends of temperature, precipitation, sea surface temperature, and snow cover across Canada. Climatological trends of temperature and precipitation are available for each season as well as annual periods over the historical period of 1981-2010. Forecasts for 3, 4, 6, 9, and 12 months into the future are offered. Data are available in mapped and tabular summary format.

    Statistically Downscaled Climate Scenarios (Opens in a new Window)

    Statistically downscaled scenarios, which provide finer resolution scenarios of climate change from coarser resolution GCM output, are available based on model output from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5). Individual model results of minimum temperature, maximum temperature and total precipitation are available for historical (1950-2005) and future (2006-2100) time periods. Gridded projections are at a daily temporal resolution and at a spatial resolution of approximately 10km. Future projections are based on the Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) scenarios.
