Are these climate indicators (see below), related with the bias adjusted ECVs?
Are they derived from the bias adjusted Escential Climate Variables (ECVs)? Are the ECVs derived from the CII?
– frost days (seasonality)
– heating degree (seasonality)
– tropical nights (seasonality)
All Climate Impact Indicators presented here on the web demonstrator are derived from four Essential Climate Variables (ECVs): these are time series of daily mean temperature, daily minimum temperature, daily maximum temperature and daily mean precipitation. Which ECV has been used for a specific CII can be seen in the Metadata information under ‘Summary’ that opens when you click the button next to the selected CII.
Under ‘Model/Projection’ > Global > Model Ensemble it is possible to select the CIIs that were derived from the raw GCM output and interpolated to 2 degree spatial resolution. The option Global (0.5 deg) represents CIIs that were derived from bias adjusted ECVs that are available in 0.5 degree spatial resolution.
