New dataset on climate extreme indices and heat stress indicators

News - News from CICERO

Published 22.03.2022

The dataset provides climate extreme indices related to temperature and precipitation as well as selected heat stress indicators derived from global climate projections.

The dataset, available in the Copernicus Climate Data Store, provides climate extreme indices related to temperature and precipitation as defined by the Expert Team on Climate Change Detection and Indices (ETCCDI), as well as selected heat stress indicators (HSI). The indices are provided for historical and future climate projections (SSP1-2.6, SSP2-4.5, SSP3-7.0, SSP5-8.5) included in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6) and used in the 6th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

This dataset provides a comprehensive source of pre-calculated and consistent ETCCDI and heat stress indicators commonly used by the climate science and impact communities.

This dataset was produced on behalf of the Copernicus Climate Change Service with support from European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and the EXHAUSTION project. The dataset may now be downloaded from the Climate Data Store.
