Lineage20-year time aggregation (mean) of CMIP5 seasonal time-series data.

CreditThis data collection is a product is funded and supported by the Australian Government through the Pacific Australian Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning Programme (PACCSAP). PACCSAP was funded by Department of Foreign Affair & Trade, managed by the Department of the Environment and the science was delivered by the partnership between CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology. Please see the supporting file acknowledgement_te.txt for a full acknowledgement statement.

This output was produced as part of PACCSAP Project 1.3.5 : Version 2 of the web tool Pacific Climate Futures

Project Description: The Pacific Climate Futures web‐tool provides national and some sub‐national projections. During the PCCSP, training was provided in all 15 partner countries. Over 350 people were trained in the Basic interface of the tool, and over 100 people were trained in the Intermediate and Advanced interfaces. This PACCSAP activity will evaluate and build on the Pacific Climate Futures Version 1 web‐based tool, provide follow‐up training for version 1, develop a version 2 with enhanced usability, provide training for version 2, and investigate the feasibility of integration with the other tools developed under PCCSP.
