Abstract

The UK climate projections (UKCP09) comma separated value (CSV) archive consists of probabilistic data for various climate parameters. Two products are available: firstly, zip files of batch processed UKCP09 data outputs that were provided as an alternative to having to generate multiple requests on the UKCP09 website; and, secondly, additional products that were not available under from the UKCP09 website. These are provided as raw data files.

List of products:

1. UK Probabilistic Projections of Climate Change over Land:
Grouped by
- variable and location and
- variable and temporal average.

2. UK Probabilistic Projections of Climate Change over Marine Regions:
Grouped by
- emissions scenario,
- location,
- temporal average,
- time period,
- variable,
- variable and location and
- variable and temporal average.

3. Projections of Trend in Storm Surge for UK Waters:
all data is grouped into one file.

4. Projections of Sea Level Rise for UK Waters:
Grouped by
- emissions scenario,
- location and
- emissions scenario and location.

5. Global average temperature change values for each time period and emissions scenario:
- all cumulative distribution function (CDF) data in a single file
- all sampled data in a single file.

6. UK Probabilistic Projections of Climate Change over Land conditioned by a given global average temperature change:
Grouped by
- probability level and
- variable and probability level

7. Spatially Coherent Projections of UK Climate Change over Land:
grouped by variable, temporal average and scenario

The file naming convention is provided in the documentation.

Previously used record identifiers:
No releated previous identifiers.
Access rules:
Public data: access to these data is available to both registered and non-registered users.
Use of these data is covered by the following licence: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/3/. When using these data you must cite them correctly using the citation given on the CEDA Data Catalogue record.
Data lineage:

Original data were produced by the Met Office as part of the UKCP09 service before preparation for archival with the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA).

Data Quality:
The UKCP09 data were quality controlled by the UKCP09 partners prior to being made available through the UKCP09 data portal in 2009. See the UKCP09 climate projections review and response along with further details are in given in the relevant projections reports (and external websites) which are available under "Docs".
File Format:
The data are provided as compressed (.zip files) comma separated value (csv) files.
