ClimateImpactsOnline illustrates the possible impacts of climate change on the countries within the Amazon basin for the sectors climate, water and forest&biodiversity.
Climate parameters include temperature and precipitation derived quantities such as the number of days above 30°C.
W5E5 observervational data is available for the period 1981-2014 and simulation results for the past and future. The latter is derived from the CMIP6 simulation collaboration.
Three integrated zoom steps lead you to more detailed presentations of the regions or districts.
Visualized for the region are now three different Shared Socio-economic pathways (SSPs) of Phase 6 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6). Underlying to each of the SSPs are different assumptions on the future development of economy and climate protection efforts. The different pathways, used climate models and observations are further explained in the information texts "Data Basis".
The visualized maps of different variables display the median over all years in the time span (10-yearly, 30-yearly) and over different General Circulation Models (GCM) that participated to CMIP6. In the diagram view, 10- and 90-percentiles calculated on the same data are additionally shown.
