Ready-to-use climate projections

Ready-to-use climate projections data are suitable for direct use in climate change impact studies and physical risk assessments. Our referenced high-resolution, multi-model, and multi-scenarios climate projections of weather variables, indices and hazards is the most coherent collection of climate information available for local risk analysis and modeling.
Climate W3

High-resolution

From 0.25°x0.25° (about 25x25 km) to 0.10°x0.10° (about 10x10 km) spatial resolution over the globe according to datasets and CMIP climate modelling experiments (CMIP5 and CMIP6). Temporal resolution is  daily values from 1951 to 2100.

Multi-scenario

Three Shared Socioeconomic Pathways from IPCC AR6 (CMIP6's SSP1-2.6, SSP2-4.5 and SSP5-8.5) and 2 Representative Concentration Pathways from IPCC AR5 (CMIP5's RCP4.5 and RCP8.5). Other scenarios available on demand

Multi-model

5 reference Earth System Models for IPCC AR6 (CMIP6) and a full set of 21 models for IPCC AR5 (CMIP5). For our AR6 data update we privileged a higher spatial resolution (0.10° versus 0.25°) and more scenarios (3 versus 2) compared to our IPCC AR5 data.
