Köppen-Geiger classifications of paleoclimate model simulations (Presentation)

Abstract

The development and application of an algorithm to compute the Köppen-Geiger climate classification for CMIP/PMIP climate model data is described in this persentation. The classification algorithm is applied to data from the PMIP III paleoclimate experiments for the Last Glacial Maximum (21k yBP), Mid-Holocene (6k yBP) and the Pre-Industrial (0k yBP, control run) time slices. The input data was interpolated to infer higher resolution classification maps. The classification was implemented using Open Source Software. GRASS GIS and the pyGRASS python library for scripting the algorithms.
