Variables

After you selected the location of interest you can choose your ‘Variable of interest’. You have the choice between:

  1. Hot days: Daily maximum temperatures (Tmax) for the location of interest will be extracted from the regional climate model output for the 2000 to 2009 period and the 2090 to 2099 period, respectively. The extracted Tmax values will be graphically displayed in a histogram with a bin size of 1oC.
  2. Frost: Daily minimum temperature (Tmin) for the location of interest will be extracted from the regional climate model output for the 2000 to 2009 period and the 2090 to 2099 period, respectively. The extracted Tmin values will be graphically displayed in a histogram with a bin size of 1oC.
  3. Hot spells: Daily maximum temperatures (Tmax) for the location of interest will be extracted from the regional climate model output for the 2000 to 2009 period and the 2090 to 2099 period, respectively. Then we count the numbers of consecutive days where Tmax was higher than a certain threshold temperature, e.g. 25oC. This is done for the first and last decade of this century separately. The threshold temperature can be set by moving the ‘pointer’ along the bar below ‘Days with T_max greater than’. You can choose any temperature between 20o and 30oC. The hot spells will be presented in a bar plot with calculated spell lengths.
  4. Cold spells: Daily maximum temperatures (Tmax) for the location of interest will be extracted from the regional climate model output for the 2000 to 2009 period and the 2090 to 2099 period, respectively. Then we count the numbers of consecutive days where Tmax was lower than a certain threshold temperature, e.g. 10oC. This is done for the first and last decade of this century separately. The threshold temperature can be set by moving the ‘pointer’ along the bar below ‘Days with Tmax lower than’. You can choose any temperature between 10o and 15oC. The cold spells will be presented in a bar plot with calculated spell lengths
