Brasilia, DF, January 15, 2015-To access the weather maps from partnership between the Secretariat of Strategic Affairs of the Presidency of the Republic (SAE / PR) and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI), just visit the site of National Spatial Data Infrastructure (INDE). The regionalized climate scenarios refer to the period from 2010 to 2100 and are comparable with the weather observed from 1969 to the present, and demonstrate the trend of extreme weather indicators, the distribution of temperature and precipitation frequency in time clippings 2011 2040; 2041-2070; and 2071-2100.
The generated maps cover all of Brazil, South America, Central America and the Caribbean, with resolution of 20 km x 20 km, and have a specific focus to São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, defining 5 km x 5 km. The ultimate goal of this tool is to provide the support necessary for the design of climate risks in the planning and development of the country. The analysis of scenarios made by specialists should increase the degree of scientific-technical and economic knowledge on the subject. Public managers and planners can use scenarios for integration and cross with other policy data.
These weather maps are available to all Brazilian citizens. Through this tool, Brazil can meet the scenarios to prepare on time and increase their resilience against the projected impacts of climate change.
