Tools and Data
Climate analysis tools and datasets are products of most projects undertaken by PCIC. We provide online access to climate scenarios, maps, datasets and other software tools for use by climate stakeholders as they develop plans for adapting to the impacts of climate variability and change.
The Provincial Climate Data Set (PCDS) Portal contains observations of weather and climate variables (such as temperature and rainfall amounts) for British Columbia.
Use PCIC’s Plan2Adapt online tool if you’re only somewhat familiar with climate modelling but still interested in better understanding the impacts that climate variability and change may have on specific regions of British Columbia.
Make use of PCIC-created GCM input files for ClimateWNA, a program provided by the University of British Columbia's Centre for Forest Gene Conservation for generating climate normal data.
Use PCIC’s Regional Analysis Tool if you’re already familiar with climate modelling and need the extra detail and complexity associated with this advanced tool for better understanding climate change impacts in the Pacific and Yukon Region.
Access climate extremes data from the ClimdEX project. ClimdEX provides datasets using a suite of 27 climate extremes indices, along with uncertainty estimates and detailed information about the construction of the datasets.
The Expert Team on Climate Change Detection and Indices provides online climate extremes indices, along with software, definitions and guidance on the calculation and use of the indices.
PCIC has made seasonal maps of average temperature and total precipitation departures from the 30-year climatology at observational weather stations in BC, for all months from 1972 onward.
