Launch of the updated UK Climate Projections User Interface

On 26 November 2018, the UK Climate Projections User Interface went live. Browse this website or head to the UKCP18 website to find out more about the UKCP18 project.

The UK Climate Projections User Interface (UKCP UI) will be further developed as we add functionality, datasets and improve the usability of the interface based on user feedback. Visit this page regularly for information on the plans for improving the UI. Current plans in the short term are to:

  • Include regional averages for probabilistic projections
  • Include plume plots for projections over land
  • Allow direct download of the data through the user interface (rather than just maps and graphs products)
  • Include files used as input into the climate models, i.e. land elevation, land area mask
  • Include derived projections on Ordnance Survey's National Grid (currently only available through CEDA Data Catalogue)

UKCP18 Observational Datasets (HadUK-Grid) now available on CEDA Data Catalogue

The HadUK-Grid observational datasets can be downloaded at the CEDA Data Catalogue. The Met Office's National Climate Information Centre has produced these at 1km, 12km, 25km, and 60km on the Ordnance Survey's National Grid to use alongside the climate model projections. You can find further information on the HadUK-Grid web pages.
