Download CMIP6 statistically downscaled climate scenarios (CanDCS-U6 & CanDCS-M6)

Download subsets of individual statistically downscaled global climate model output. subsets can be temporally and spatially defined, and filtered by the desired variable, scenario, and model. Click and drag out a box on the map to select a geographic subset of the data, or enter the coordinates below the map. Data cannot be provided with the selection of a single grid point location.

Two datasets calculated with different downscaling methods, CanDCS-U6 (univariate downscaling) and CanDCS-M6 (multivariate downscaling), are available for download. More information on the datasets provided can be found by clicking on the info icon button to the dataset selection below. Please see the technical notes for details on the statistical downscaling method.

Temperature datasets for three models in the CanDCS-U6 dataset were updated in August 2023. These updates corrected some anomalously high temperatures in the original data. Additional details on the updated datasets and correction methods can be found in the technical notes.
