Ontario Climate Change Data Portal (hereinafter, Ontario CCDP) is launched to ensure technical or non-technical end-users (e.g. municipalities, private sector) have easy and intuitive access to the latest climate data over the Province of Ontario, Canada.
Up to now, Ontario CCDP has incorporated the high-resolution (25 km x 25 km) climate projections developed by the IEESC at the University of Regina using the PRECIS model and the RegCM model under RCP4.5, RCP8.5, and SRES A1B emissions scenarios. Other modeling results will be gradually integrated into this data portal in the near future.
You are currently in the view window of climate change projections under RCP8.5 emissions scenario. For more details, please refer to the full technical report. If you want to switch to the view window of RCP4.5 emissions scenario, please click here; if you want to switch to the view window of A1B emissions scenario, please click here.
The data presented in this view window is derived from the dynamically-downscaled climate projections by RegCM at a resolution of 25 km under RCP8.5 emissions scenario, driven by boundary conditions from CanESM2, HadGEM2-ES, GFDL-ESM2M, IPSL-CM5A-LA, and MPI-ESM-MR, as well as the dynamically-downscaled climate projections from PRECIS under RCP8.5 driven by HadGEM2-ES.
