! Beta version of DECM application for visualising and exploring climate model data.!
To assess the large volume of climate model simulations, we propose a straightforward comparison of climate models' ability in reproducing the seasonal cycle of summary statistics based on large multi-model ensembles and a set of predefined regions and domains (e.g AR5 IPCC domains, European regions). The DECM app contains figures and tables showing examples of summary statistics derived from simulated and observed-based climate datasets.
The climate simulations evaluated here are based on the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project-Phase 5 - CMIP5, the European branch of the Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment over Europe - EURO-CORDEX, the global atmospheric reanalysis ERAINT , and the gridded dataset E-OBS in order to assess how reliable are estimations from global and regional climate models before they can be used in impact studies.
The functions are categorised in two main groups such as 'Product Users' and 'Data Users'. The 'Product users' group focuses on fancy and interactive graphics of output statistics, while the 'Data Users' group is more devoted to output statistics in terms of data and tables.
You can click here or on the dashboard (figure above) to launch the DECM-App and navigate between menu items.
The DECM app contains figures and tables showing examples of simulated vs observed-based datasets of CMIP5 and EURO-CORDEX simulations for various regions and domains
Most of the outputs are based on three easy main-steps:
1. Select your region
2. Modify few Settings
E.g. Multi-model ensemble of historical simulations for the period 1981-2010
3. Visualize the results
E.g. Seasonal cycle of unadjusted EURO-CORDEX temperature simulations for the period 1981-2010 over Finland.
The DECM App works fine on all devices such as Desktops, Tablets, Mobile phones, etc. We recommend using a Desktop as on small screen devices some of the figures or tables could be very small or not visible.
