NARCCAP is an international program that serves the high resolution
climate scenario needs of the United States, Canada, and northern
Mexico, using regional climate model, coupled global climate model,
and time-slice experiments.
NARCCAP users include those interested in regional analysis,
impacts studies, and further downscaling. User resources.
NARCCAP data is stored in CF-compliant NetCDF format and
distributed through the Earth System Grid. Data access and documentation.
Timeslice Climate Change Plots —
Plots for the GFDL-timeslice have been updated, and plots for the CCSM-timeslice have been added. Both experiments now have three RCMs for comparison: Timeslice Results.
New Data as of October 2012 —
Recently-published data includes 3-D variables from both HRM3-grdl
runs; a number of missing 2-D variables from the MM5I-ccsm runs, as
well as 3-D data from the MM5I-ccsm current run; and multiple
variables (2-D and 3-D) from both runs of the CAM3 timeslice
MM5I-HadCM3 Climate Change Plots —
Plots showing downscaling of seasonal climate change for
the MM5I-HadCM3 runs are now available: MM5I+HadCM3.
