The Climate Downscaling Tool (ClimateDT) is a geo-web service aimed at downscaling a large number of climatic variables and indexes from multiple climatic scenarios on a 5km grid using a combination of CRU-TS for the historical climate (1901-now) and the UKCP18 dataset for future projections (current-2098).

The system combines spatial interpolation of climatic data and dynamic lapse rate adjustment to implement scale-free queries over Europe.

Using this service, you can upload, check and submit your locations for dynamic downscaling of climatic variables on our dedicated server. You will be alerted by email when the calculation is completed with instruction on how to download the output file (in .csv format).

Please note that, at the moment, the downscaling calculation is limited to 1,000 locations per submission. The exceeding records will be discarded upon file uploading.

(1) Upload your location(s) as .csv*

(*): comma as separator and column names are mandatory.

  Download the template here

(2) Check your locations on the map

Locations are displayed as follows:

  •   dynamic downscaling allowed
  •   outside the data coverage

Move your locations manually to adjust them. New coordinates will be recalculated dynamically in the table at the end of the page. These are the data that will be submitted to downscaling.

(3) Submit your data

After carefully reviewing your input data, submit your location list by clicking the button below. All locations will be packed and calculated (ca. 9 seconds per locations are needed). You will be alerted by e-mail when the downscaling is completed.

  Check & Submit

Please note that the downscaling output file will be erased from the remote server after 5 days since the submission.
