We present an interactive climate atlas providing visualisations of future regional climate projections of temperature and precipitation in northern Europe from multiple sources. It is based on results of both empirical-statistical and dynamical downscaling of multi-model ensembles from CMIP5 and CMIP6 including several emission scenarios. Displayed alongside each other, the projected climate change estimated from different model ensembles can be compared and contrasted. The comparison can be useful to evaluate the robustness of the climate change information and the influence of methodological choices such as the downscaling method and the selection of global climate models, and to explore how the level of greenhouse gas emissions may affect the future climate. The application is developed by researchers at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute and is freely available at the website
