Atlas: choose area
The KNMI Climate Change Atlas supports three ways to select an area for teh map or time series plots.
- A list of pre-defined areas, which at this moment encompass the whole world (all, land, see), continents, and the areas used in the IPCC WG1 AR5 Annex I "Atlas" (which includes all coordinates). For the land areas these are equal to the areas defined in the IPCC SREX report. I am trying to get hold of the WG2 predefined areas as well.
- A place, defined by lat/lon co-ordinates, enter degrees West as negative degrees East and degrees South as negative degrees North. The fields will be interpolated to this point and a map will be shown with a 10° margin around it.
- A box, defined by two co-ordinates, again with negative values for degrees East or South. The field can be restricted to land or sea points defined on the model grid as provided by teh data provider. For fields with fractional land/sea masks the cut-off is put at 50%.
