Climate BC: A program to generate climate normal data for genecology and climate change studies in western Canada

ClimateBC extracts and downscales PRISM monthly data (2.5 x 2.5 arcmin) for the reference period (1961-1990), and calculates seasonal and annual climate variables for specific locations based on latitude, longitude and elevation (optional) for British Columbia, Yukon Territories, the Alaska Panhandle, and part of Alberta and US. This program also downscales and integrates future climate datasets for 2020s, 2050s and 2080s generated by various global circulation models. The output includes both directly calculated and derived climate variables.

This program has been updated to include the whole of western North America (ClimateWNA) and added a reference evaporation value. The link to download the free software and data ishttp://www.genetics.forestry.ubc.ca/cfcg/ClimateWNA/ClimateWNA.html
