Dataset was scientifically peer reviewed
The data layer represents the degree of uncertainty or variation (as standard deviation) between 8 individual CMIP5 general circulation models (CanESM2, IPSL-CM5A-MR, MPI-ESM-LR, CCSM4, HadGEM2-ES, CNRM-CM5, GFDL-CM3, INM-CM4) for local climatic dissimilarity, a metric commonly used to assess the intensity of exposure to climate change. The exposure metric was calculated based on the first two principal components (PC) scores derived from 11 different climate variables.
