The FP7 IS-ENES2 European project is pleased to announce the release of the 1st operational version of the 'climate4impact.eu' climate data portal tailored for the climate change impacts community.
The Climate 4 Impact portal www.climate4impact.eu is a climate data portal tailored for climate change impact modellers, impact and adaptation consultants, as well as other experts using climate change data.
Here the target groups will find access to data and quick looks of global climate models (GCM) scenarios, as well as regional climate model (RCM) and downscaled higher resolution climate data. The portal provides data transformation tooling for tailoring data to your needs and mapping & plotting capabilities.
Guidance on how to use climate scenarios, documentation on the climate system, frequently asked questions and examples in several impact and adaptation themes are presented and described, along with the steps required to go from GCM data to impact model input data.
The portal will be updated regularly in the upcoming months to extend its functionalities and enhance especially the documentation and support, the downscaling and on-demand data processing/indices services.
Contributions in this project and to this webportal are from Ronald Hutjes, Erik van Slobbe and Fokke de Jong.
