Arequipa Climate Maps

Project member? Login to members area.


Climate is a powerful driver of agricultural and natural systems, and spatial climate data sets in digital form are currently in great demand. This is especially true in the Arequipa region of Peru, a region with low seasonal precipitation, significant topographic variability, and a great demand for water use in a highly managed water system. This project aims to develop high resolution, terrain sensitive climate maps of daily average, minimum and maximum temperature and precipitation for the Arequipa region in Peru.
