Learn the basics of climate data

Use the Introduction to SNAP Climate Data web tool to explore the basics of climate modeling and how it’s applied to SNAP’s data. Simply take a tour of the interactive map and see a basic explanation of terms used in climate modeling, such as General Circulation Models, downscaling, and Representative Concentration Pathways.

Want to know more about how SNAP’s datasets are used? The tool also gives context for two SNAP climate datasets—temperature and length of growing season—and highlights their usefulness in making meaningful projections of climate in Alaska.

As the tour continues, you will learn where to find more details on tour topics, and where to go to download SNAP data for your own work.
