Description

This data set provides the results of the development of The Vegetation/Ecosystem Modeling and Analysis Project (VEMAP) Phase 2 transient climate change scenarios for the state of Alaska, USA. The data include gridded monthly historical and future estimates of maximum and minimum temperature, solar radiation, vapor pressure, irradiance, relative humidity and potential evapotranspiration at 0.5-degree spatial resolution. Historical data are for the period 1922-1996; future estimates cover the period 1997-2100.
