MACA Projections

Changes were calculated as the difference between the future and historical(1971-2000) averages from both the downscaled MACA product and the raw GCM data. Temperature and relative humidity were calculated using monthly averages of daily minimum and maximum values. Precipitation was calculated from monthly precipitation values aggregated from daily. Wind and solar radiation were calculated from daily values aggregated to monthly. The middle panel of the multi-model plot show that standard deviation of the projected changes across models.

Note: The data used to make the MACAv2-METDATA maps shown here can be downloaded for individual models in .netcdf format as data layers.
