4b) Climate Wizard Custom Analysis at:

Not Open source

Downscaled data: BCSD

Same as for Climate Wizard.

Variables for future projections for US: precip (absol and % change), mean mon temperature,  moisture deficit, moisture surplus, PET, AET/PET ratio, SPI (seasonal precip index), rain anomaly index.

Variables for future proj for global: no SPI and rain anomaly index.

Variables for hist: only up to mean mon temperature plus mean mon Tmax and mean mon Tmin.

Same as for Climate Wizard. - Add area – predefined or upload shapefile
(list of predefined areas – US states, US Nat forests, WWF ecoregions, global regions, countries, custom areas);
- choose climatology (current or future modeled climate);
- climate variables – precip (absol and % change); mean mon temp, mean mon TMAX, mean mon TMIN; others ...
- Regions – US or global
- analysis options – departure (from 1961-1990), linear trend analysis,
-English units or not
- time options – start year, end year, annual, seasonal, monthly;
