warming: Global warming data.

Description Usage Format Source

Description

A dataset containing global warming data for 110 different climate models and/or scenarios from CMIP5. Additionally the results of a large glacier model for the high mountains of Asia (HMA) are included (Kraaijenbrink et al., 2017).

Temperature delta are provided between pre-industrial (PI, 1851-1880) and end of century (EOC, 2071-2100).

Glacier volume change is provided in percent between 2005 and EOC.
Total glacier mass in the region is 4754 Gt.
