It is important to maintain scenario consistency if your application requires both temperature and rainfall change. See the FAQ: What climate scenario should I use for my impact model? for more information.
We recommend the following combinations of Global Climate Model, rate of global warming and emission scenario to represent a low, moderate and high impact scenario over Australia as a whole. The following impact combinations may not apply to smaller regions.
- Low impact = MUIB/KMA: ECHO-G Global Climate Model with low rate of global warming and B1 emission scenario
- Moderate impact = Max Planck: ECHAM5/MPI-OM Global Climate Model with moderate rate of global warming and A1B emission scenario
- High impact = GFDL: GFDL-CM2.1 Global Climate Model with high rate of global warming and A1FI emission scenario
To generate the low impact, moderate impact and high impact scenarios go to the Advanced section.
