UKCP09 projections - Sea Surface and Seabed Temperature Change (medium emissions, 2080-2090 projections)

What is it: 

These layers show a sub-set of the UKCP09 marine and coastal projections up to 2090s (see layer name for date) using a medium emission scenario and, where appropriate, medium probability. The sub-set chosen are considered to be most relevant to marine planning and management in Scottish waters. The full suite of projections, and all emissions scenarios, can be found on the UKCP09 web site.  An update of the UKCP09 data outputs is planned for 2018.

There are nine layers available for Sea Surface, Seabed Temperature and Salinity Changes:

  1. Change in Sea Surface Temperature for 1) winter;  2) spring; 3) summer, and; 4) autumn
  2. Change in Near Bed Temperature for 1) winter; 2) spring; 3) summer, and; 4) autumn
  3. Change in Sea Surface Salinity, winter
