Before you start using UKCP data
There are a number of documents that help guide you on issues that you need to be aware of when using the UKCP datasets as well as describing what is available and the results that you may see. We recommend that you become familiar with these before embarking on your analysis. These include:
- UKCP18 Guidance: Caveats and limitations (PDF - 787kB)
- UKCP18 Guidance: Data availability, access and formats (PDF - 1.3MB) [Updated July2021]
Factsheets with key results can be found here.
UK Climate Projections User Interface
If you would like to download additional data or plots not available on the UKCP key results page, use the UK Climate Projections User Interface. When registered, you can customise visualisations for your region of interest and download UKCP data for the UK. Register, download data and customise your visualisations from UKCP at the UK Climate Projections User Interface.
CEDA Data Catalogue
Some datasets are not available in the UKCP User Interface. Details of every UKCP dataset can be found on the CEDA Catalogue. This is an online database of climate data held on the CEDA Archive and managed by the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis. You can find UKCP data on the CEDA Archive not available on the UKCP User Interface. For example, data for other parts of the world for UKCP Global (60km) and UKCP Regional (12km) as well as the 2.2km data from UKCP Local (2.2km) and the storm surge case studies.
Please note, the CEDA Archive should only be accessed by users that are familiar with handling large climate datasets.
