5km gridded resolution data for four climate projection scenarios, produced in support of the UK Climate Impacts Programme 2002 (UKCIP02) by the Met Office Hadley Centre.

There are data for monthly and seasonal average anomalies with respect to simulated 1961~90 average for four alternative future climates for the UK. The four emissions scenarios are Low (LO), Medium-Low (ML), Medium-High (MH) and High (HI).

Monthly data for cloud, precipitation (prec), temperature (temp), maximum temperature (tmax), minimum temperature (tmin) and wind are available using the following convention in the filename:
2020s = predictions for 2011 to 2040,
2050s = predictions for 2041 to 2070,
2080s = predictions for 2071 to 2100.

Process overview

This dataset was generated by the computation detailed below.
Title UKCIP02 Scenario Computations
Abstract The UK Climate Impact Programme 2002 (UKCIP02) climate change scenarios are based exclusively on experiments completed using the HadCM3 global climate model, HadAM3H high-resolution atmosphere model and the HadRM3 regional climate mode by the Met Office Hadley Centrel. The same hierarchy of climate model experiments is used as the basis for each scenario.
