Data in ClimateImpactsOnline India

This portal illustrates the possible impacts of climate change on India for the sectors climate and agriculture. Climate parameters include temperature and precipitation derived quantities such as the number of hot days above 30°C. Observational 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. Four integrated zoom steps lead you to more detailed presentations of the federal states and districts.
Visualized for India 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. We would like to refer to here for further information on the different pathways. 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 is shown. We make use of the observational data set W5E5 for the years 1981-2014. This means that for the decade 2011-2020, only 4 years are present and likewise the difference maps is only relative to the years 1991-2014. We will continuously update and communicate further data of W5E5 in this decade.
