Using the CMIP Tool
This tool works with data from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s Downscaled CMIP5 Climate and Hydrology Projections (DCHP) website, available at http://gdo-dcp.ucllnl.org/downscaled_cmip_projections . This website houses climate model data from phase 5 (CMIP5) of the World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP).
Use of the tool requires three primary steps:
Determining the appropriate climate data to download from the DCHP website, including location, models, and emissions scenario(s)
Using the appropriate CMIP Climate Data Processing Tool to process data from the DCHP website into specific temperature and precipitation variables
Reviewing the results and properly applying them to decision-making
