Weather, Climate, and Health: Investigating Extreme Heat

Main content

In this exercise you will work with the Community Climate System Model (CCSM) model output for future global temperature. You will map three RCPs: A high emissions scenario – RCP 8.5; a middle of the road emissions scenario – RCP 6.0; and a low emissions scenario – RCP 4.5.

Technical skills you will learn:

  • Working with multidimensional data.
  • Learning about symbology.
  • Working with raster datasets.
  • Creating a final map product.

This exercise was developed for the Weather, Climate, and Health Workshop  that took place the summer of  2013.
