APGD indices access

You are here

This is the page for the indices derived from the APGD dataset. The plots below provide the plurennial mean of several climate indices (ETCCDI indices marked with *) derived using daily precipitation sum (RR). They cover the Alpine Region with a spatial resolution of 5 x 5 km over the period 1971-01-01 - 2008-12-31.

More details on the calculation of the indices can be found here.
