Virtualization of Climate change scenarios

RIMES visualizes climate change scenarios using IPCC AR4 models to get a global picture about spatial and temporal changes (Figure 1.1 below)

Standard global datasets like the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of low and high resolutions are used to compute correlation statistics and climate diagnostics to profile the GCMs. Other observed global datasets, including satellite derived data-sets of precipitation, sea-surface temperature and sea-levels.
