QGIS - Lesson 1: Global Analysis – Exploring Global Climate Model Output

Main content

This is an introductory module for anyone interested in learning QGIS. 

In this first exercise, we will be working with global climate model output from the Community Earth System Model (CESM) in order to map possible future temperature and precipitation change by the middle of the 21st century.  We will map temperature change thresholds and identify which regions may be affected by these changes.  This first exercise will focus on global change.
