Title Climatic projections for Madagascar
Downloaded 32 times
Description Climatic projections from seven IPCC CMIP5 global climate models (GCMs) for years 2050 and 2080 following two representative concentration pathways (RCPs): RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5. The seven GCMs are: ACCESS 1.0 (ac), CCSM4 (cc), GISS-E2-R (gs), HadGEM2-ES (he), IPSL-CM5A-LR (ip), MIROC5 (mc) and NorESM1-M (no). The projections are for the following bioclimatic variables: bio1=mean annual temperature, bio4=temperature seasonality, bio12=annual precipitation.

Title Multiband raster of explicative variables.
Downloaded 20 times
Description Multiband raster of explicative variables for the ACD model. The raster includes the following bands: elevation, EVI, VCF, mean annual temperature, temperature seasonality and annual precipitation. EVI is scaled between 0 and 10000 so that the raster type can be "INT2S". EVI must be rescaled between 0 and 1 to be used with the Random Forests model.
