We present new global maps of the Köppen-Geiger climate classification at an unprecedented 1-km resolution for the present-day (1980-2016) and for projected future conditions (2071-2100) under climate change. [] Key Method The present-day map is derived from an ensemble of four high-resolution, topographically-corrected climatic maps.

A 1-km global dataset of historical (1979–2017) and future (2020–2100) Köppen-Geiger climate classification and bioclimatic variables

Abstract. The Köppen-Geiger climate classification scheme provides an effective and ecologically meaningful way to characterize climatic conditions and has been widely applied in climate change

Observed and projected changes in global climate zones based on Köppen climate classification

In recent years, there has been a growing body of literature applying the Köppen classification scheme to investigate the changes in the distribution of bioclimatic conditions. Area changes and

Future Scenario of Global Climate Map change according to the Köppen -Geiger Climate Classification

Earth’s climate changes rapidly due to the increases in human demands and rapid economic growth. These changes will affect the entire biosphere, mostly in negative ways. Predicting future changes

Bioclimatic change as a function of global warming from CMIP6 climate projections

Climate change is predicted to lead to major changes in terrestrial ecosystems (Pörtner et al., 2022). However, significant differences in climate model projections for given scenarios of greenhouse

Potential shifts in climate zones under a future global warming scenario using soil moisture classification

Climate zones fundamentally shape the patterns of the terrestrial environment and human habitation. How global warming alters their current distribution is an important question that has yet to be

Evaluation of historical CMIP6 model simulations and future projections of temperature and precipitation in Paraguay

This study evaluates the ability of 19 models of CMIP phase 6 (CMIP6) to simulate Paraguay’s climate features. Historical multi-member simulations of single models and their multi-model ensembles are

Assessment of Climate Change in Central Asia from 1980 to 2100 Using the Köppen-Geiger Climate Classification

The accelerated global warming and heterogeneous change in precipitation have been resulting in climate system shifts, which plays a key role in the stability of ecosystem and social economic

Assessment of CMIP6 Performance and Projected Temperature and Precipitation Changes Over South America

We evaluate the performance of a large ensemble of Global Climate Models (GCMs) from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6) over South America for a recent past reference period

Assessing climate boundary shifting under climate change scenarios across Nepal

This study presents comprehensive pictures of historical and near/mid future climate classes across Nepal to facilitate the identification of regions in which impacts of climate change are notable for crop production, soil management, and disaster risk reduction, requiring a more detailed assessment of adaptation measures.



The climate of the European Alps: Shift of very high resolution Köppen-Geiger climate zones 1800–2100

Although the European Alps are one of the most investigated regions worldwide, maps depicting climate change by means of climate classification are still not-existent. To contribute to this topic, a

Climatologies at high resolution for the earth’s land surface areas

It is shown that CHELSA climatological data has a similar accuracy as other products for temperature, but that its predictions of precipitation patterns are better and can increase the accuracy of species range predictions.

Updated world map of the Köppen-Geiger climate classification

Abstract. Although now over 100 years old, the classification of climate originally formulated by Wladimir Koppen and modified by his collaborators and successors, is still in widespread use. It is

Very high resolution interpolated climate surfaces for global land areas

We developed interpolated climate surfaces for global land areas (excluding Antarctica) at a spatial resolution of 30 arc s (often referred to as 1‐km spatial resolution). The climate elements

World Map of the Köppen-Geiger climate classification updated

A new digital Koppen-Geiger world map on climate classification, valid for the second half of the 20 th century, based on recent data sets from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia and the Global Precipitation Climatology Centre at the German Weather Service.

WorldClim 2: new 1‐km spatial resolution climate surfaces for global land areas

We created a new dataset of spatially interpolated monthly climate data for global land areas at a very high spatial resolution (approximately 1 km2). We included monthly temperature (minimum,

Updated high‐resolution grids of monthly climatic observations – the CRU TS3.10 Dataset

This paper describes the construction of an updated gridded climate dataset (referred to as CRU TS3.10) from monthly observations at meteorological stations across the world's land areas. Station

The role of land cover in bioclimatic models depends on spatial resolution

Aim  We explored the importance of climate and land cover in bird species distribution models on multiple spatial scales. In particular, we tested whether the integration of land cover data improves

High-Resolution Global Maps of 21st-Century Forest Cover Change

Intensive forestry practiced within subtropical forests resulted in the highest rates of forest change globally, and boreal forest loss due largely to fire and forestry was second to that in the tropics in absolute and proportional terms.
