CERA project information for Delta method downscaled CMIP5 database
Delta method downscaled CMIP5 database
The datasets contained here are part of the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) and The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). We apply a simple downscaling method (named delta method), based on the sum of interpolated anomalies from CMIP to high resolution monthly climate surfaces. The method produces high resolution climate change data that can be used for crop modeling, niche modeling, and more generally, for assessing impacts of climate change on agriculture at fine scales.
