Spatial Projections Tool

This tool visualizes spatial maps of projections of select MACA data over seasons (winter,spring,summer,fall, annual), over early/mid/late 21st century for the individual global climate models and the multi-model mean. Additionally, all the projections from the different models can be viewed at once. The user has the ability to overlay US state and county boundaries on the map. The user can also download the data for the maps as netCDF or geoTIFF files.

Scatterplot of Climate Projections Tool

This tool visualizes a scatterplot of future projections from MACA dataset. The user can select a rectangular spatial region from the US and parameters for the axes, including the variable and season for the projection. Displayed is a scatterplot of points indicating the future projection under the RCP 4.5/8.5 scenarios. The user has the ability to highlight certain model projections on the figure.

Boxplot of Climate Projections Tool

This tool visualizes a boxplot range of model projections from the MACA dataset under the RCP4.5/8.5 future scenarios along side the historical results. The user can select select a rectangular spatial region from the US and parameters for the variable displayed.

Annual Time Series Summaries Tool

This tool visualizes annual summaries of time series of the MACA data, allowing visualization of all of the model projections and comparison between future emission scenarios.

Raw Data Time Series Tool

This tool visualizes time series of the MACA data in raw form (i.e. daily or monthly time series).
