SCIPEA Climate Data Portal (ICPAC Site)

Strengthening Climate Information Partnerships - East Africa is a UKaid-funded project of the WISER programme (Weather and climate Information and SERvices for Africa).

SCIPEA aims to strengthen partnerships between organisations involved in production, use, research and train ing activities regarding seasonal climate forecast information, toward increased capacity for national/regional early warning and effective early actions. SCIPEA is led by the Met Office (UK), togethe r with the IRI, the IGAD Climate Prediction and Applications Centre (ICPAC), and national meteorological services and universities/training and other centres from Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

Forecasts
These maps display climatological values of forecast 2-meter temperature, sea surface temperature, and precipitation at multiple leads and start times during the year for a selection of climate models. The climatological base period is 1982-2010 for CFSv2 and 1981-2010 for CMC1 and CMC2.
These maps display anomaly values of forecast 2-meter temperature, sea surface temperature, and precipitation at multiple leads for a selection of climate models. The climatological base period is 1982-2010 for CFSv2 and 1981-2010 for CMC1 and CMC2.
These maps display anomaly correlations between hindcasts of 2-meter temperature, sea surface temperature, and precipitation and observed values of the same variables at multiple leads for a selection of climate models. The range of years over which the correlation is calculated is 1982-2010 for CFSv2 and 1981-2010 for CMC1 and CMC2.
Observations
These maps display climatological values of observed precipitation, temperature, sea surface temperature, and mean sea level pressure. The climatological base period is 1981-2010.
These maps display anomalies of observed precipitation, temperature, sea surface temperature, and mean sea level pressure. The climatological base period is 1981-2010.
