## Climate Scenarios for Austria (1971 - 2100) Depending on the climate parameters, time of year, scale and degree of adaptation, the advancing global climate change has led to changes that impact systems in different ways. Climate change adaptation and the identification of possible intervention measures requires a founded analysis of the risks related to climate change and its impacts. In order to adequately prepare for impending changes, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, in partnership with the nine Austrian States (Länder), has initiated the project ÖKS15, which aims at preparing a basis for developing action strategies for climate change adaptation. The Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG), the Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change at the University of Graz, and the Interfaculty Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS at the University of Salzburg have been commissioned to undertake an analysis of past and future climate change in the Austrian States. As a result, a set of regional climate projections, employing a climate-protection-scenario (RCP4.5) and a business-as-usual-scenario (RCP8.5) and covering the period 1971 to 2100, from the EURO-CORDEX (www.euro-cordex.net) initiative has been specifically prepared (interpolated and bias-corrected) for the Austrian territory. This set can be downloaded here (https://data.ccca.ac.at/group/oks15). Further results (derived climate change signals, their position within the range of the EURO-CORDEX climate models as well as an assessment of these), primarily prepared for decision makers in policy and practitioners, that have been fed into the federal and state GIS systems and will be now integrated into the CCCA ÖKS15 data portal as well.
