GeoClimate UKCP09 Open
Scale:2 km gridded dataset
Format:2 km gridded GIS data (ESRI, MapInfo, others available by request)
The BGS GeoClimate: shrink–swell national datasets show potential change in subsidence due to changes in climate. They have been developed by combining long term UK Climate Projection (UKCP) scenarios for rainfall and temperature changes with the geotechnical properties of the ground, to identify areas projected to experience the largest increases in susceptibility to subsidence over the next century.
GeoClimate UKCP09 Open is provided for three time periods: 2030s, 2050s and 2080s, with one projection provided for each time period based on the average outcome for the medium emissions scenario and the most susceptible GeoSure value (worst case) within the grid cell.
