Köppen-Geiger classifications of paleoclimate model simulations

Christian Willmes, University of Cologne
Thursday 13:00 - 13:25
Session 2, Track 6, Slot 1

A pyGRASS implementation of the Köppen-Geiger climate classification applied to paleoclimate model simulations from the Paleoclimate Model Intercomparison Project III (PMIP III) will be presented. The talk will show the details of how Köppen-Geiger classifications are practically implemented and applied to climate model simulations using GRASS GIS, the python library pyGRASS and QGIS for the cartography.
