Product Information: Maps: Anomalies for probabilistic projections (25km) over UK, 1961-2100
Process Title:
Maps: Anomalies for probabilistic projections (25km) over UK, 1961-2100
Abstract:
Generates maps of 10th, 50th and 90th percentiles of future changes over the UK for one variable from the probabilistic projections. Either single year averages (monthly/seasonal/annual) for a specific year from 1961 to 2100 are available or 20/30 year decadal averages for the future period only. Results are available for anomalies for a given scenario, temporal average, time and the 25km grid or regional averages.
User Guide:
For guidance on the Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP) and how to interpret the plots, please see the guidance pages.

Variable Variable A climate variable anomaly is the difference of a future climate variable compared to a past or present climate (e.g. 1981-2000). Anomalies can be expressed in absolute values (e.g. degrees Celsius change for temperature) are relative values (e.g. percentage change for precipitation) string item tasAnom
