Download data

download dataSNAP datasets are project-specific, but we always try to extend analyses to the largest possible spatial and temporal extents to allow greatest applicability to other projects.

Downscaled SNAP data cover Alaska, Alaska-western Canada, polar, and worldwide, from the mid–1800s to 2100.

Datasets include:

  • observed historical
  • modeled historical
  • modeled projected data out to 2100 across several top ranked GCMs and scenarios (SRES or RCPs)

GeoTIFF format: This stable and compressed format can be easily read by ArcGIS, QGIS, R (raster package recommended), GDAL, GRASS, and many others.

Naming scheme: We strive for consistent naming, although there may be slight variations across datasets. Please refer to the metadata for details on specific datasets. Here's a general guide:
