ENES Portal Interface for the Climate Impact Communities (2013)

Description

The ENES Portal Interface for the Climate Impact Communities (EPICIC) is oriented towards climate change impact modellers, impact and adaptation consultants, as well as other experts using climate change data. The portal is in its evaluation phase, contact the developers at KNMI if for comments or contributions to the portal.

Access is provided to data and quick looks of global climate models (GCM) scenarios, as well as some regional climate model (RCM) and downscaled higher resolution climate data. The portal provides data transformation tooling for tailoring data to user needs and mapping & plotting capabilities. All using standardised interfaces and common data processing tools to access and process data, properly described with standardised metadata.

Guidance on how to use climate scenarios, documentation on the climate system, frequently asked questions (FAQ) and examples in several impact and adaptation themes (Use Cases) are presented and described, along with the steps required to go from the GCM data to the impact model input data (workflow). Examples are currently included for agriculture/forestry, water management, marine/coastal, tourism, energy, health, infrastructure/urban, and nature/biodiversity.
