Projected Monthly Temperature 1 km AR5 RCP 8.5

This set of files includes downscaled projections of mean monthly temperatures (in degrees Celsius, no unit conversion necessary) from January 2006 - December 2100 at 1x1 kilometer spatial resolution. Each file represents a single month in a given year. The original SNAP downscaled temperature product at 2x2 kilometer spatial scale was resampled to a 1x1 kilometer spatial scale using a bilinear interpolation for input in the Integrated Ecosystem Model (IEM).

Original temperature datasets at 2km spatial resolution can be found here:
