The range of future climate change depends on the concentrations of greenhouse gases that will be emitted into the atmosphere over years and decades. Climate science organizations worldwide generate future climate models based on scenarios called representative concentration pathways (RCPs). There are four RCPs, each representing a different level of greenhouse gases being added to the earth’s atmosphere.

First, you’ll import, symbolize, and explore baseline (historical) climate data inĀ ArcGIS Pro. Baseline climate data is important because future climate projections are presented as differences from baseline climate conditions. You’ll use this baseline to evaluate several climate anomaly scenarios.
