Understand Future Climate Risks

A unique source of information about climate variability, risk, and impacts

ClimBiz provides a rich set of 21st century supercomputer based climate projections.  The climate projections provide future scenarios of environmental variables illustrating the climate trends and variability that will challenge your business or provide opportunity.  ClimBiz ADAPT enables you to understand scenarios of future climates allowing assessment of of future business performance and development of climate resilience and adaptation strategies.

ADAPT Climate Projection Analysis Tool

The ClimBiz ADAPT tool allows users to analyze future climate climate projections for any country of the world, many subregions, and US States.  The informatiuon is based on the widely used CMIP5 climate model projections.

Climate Projection Selector

Many combinations and analyses of climate projections can be selected.  This includes

  1. Future Scenarios include
    1. RCP 2.6
    2. RCP 4.5
    3. RCP 6.0
    4. RCP 8.5
  2. Regions, including
    1. Continents
    2. Countries
    3. Subregions such as provinces, territories, and states
  3. Environmental Variables such as
    1. Temperatures
    2. Precipitation
    3. Wind Speed
    4. Solar Insolation
  4. Time Frames for averaging including
    1. Annual average
    2. 3 month seasonal average
    3. Individual Months
  5. Time scale of analysis
    1. Selections starting in 2006 and ending in 2100
  6. Individual Climate Models and Individual Ensemble Runs

Climate Projection Results

Several Different Analyses are produced.  They include:

  1. Graphs of the projected climate variable changes over time averaged over the model option selected
  2. Graphs of the results of each individual model
  3. Histograms of the selected variable over the target time period
  4. Linear estimates of any trends

Application and Analysis – ClimBiz ADAPT

ADAPT is designed to enable impact analysis based on different climate scenarios.  ClimBiz has developed a whitepaper called “Climate Foresight for Electric Networks.” It analyses the impact of optimizing the need to reliably generate electricity while minimizing carbon dioxide production while doing so.
