Climate4Impact is IS-ENES’s portal. It aims to support climate change impact modellers, impact and adaptation consultants, as well anyone else wanting to use climate change data. Climate4Impact offers access to data and visualizations of global climate models (GCM), regional climate models (RCM) and downscaled high resolution climate data. It provides data transformation tooling like indices calculations, downscaling, subsetting and regridding for tailoring data to your needs.
Besides tooling Guidance is also provided: how to use climate scenarios, how the climate models model the complex climate system, and provide example use cases in several impact and adaptation themes. These Use Cases show how data providers (climate science specialists) and users are taking into account greenhouse gas scenarios, spatial resolution needs, uncertainties, climate variability, among others, which are very important when performing impact, vulnerability and adaptation studies.CLIMATE4IMPACT website
