Library of climate resources

This is a collection of links to climate datasets, tools, guidance and related resources. The sources include the federal government, provincial and territorial governments, national professional organizations, climate consortia and established international organizations. It can be useful for impact, vulnerability and risk assessments, and for adaptation planning.

Explanation of the different resource types
  • data product - downloadable climate dataset
  • tool - builds on a dataset with further analyses and/or visualization
  • guidance - provides direction on the use of climate information or on conducting climate-related assessments
  • additional resources include educational and awareness-raising material, impact assessments and scientific syntheses

    PRISM Climatology and Monthly Timeseries Portal (Opens in a new Window)

    The High-Resolution PRISM Climatology page provides access to gridded, 30 arc-second (roughly 800 metre) maximum and minimum temperature and precipitation climatologies for the 1971-2000 and 1981-2010 climate normal periods for land-surface areas of British Columbia. The gridded climatologies were derived from station data interpolated using the Parameter-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model (PRISM). The user interface to the portal features an interactive map of the province that allows users to zoom, pan and select their region of interest using a rectangular selection tool. Data can be downloaded into NetCDF, ASCII, or Arc 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.

    Seasonal Anomaly Maps (Opens in a new Window)

    The Seasonal Anomaly maps tool gives access to static maps of anomalies of climatic variables relative to 1971-2000 averages from monitoring stations across British Columbia. Climate variables include minimum and maximum temperature, and precipitation. Annual maps are available from 1972 to 2018 for each season, and month.

    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.
