The Florida Climate Institute (FCI) is a network of universities across Florida working to improve society’s understanding of climate variability and change by fostering interdisciplinary research, developing new technologies for a resilient Florida, and strengthening education in climate science and applications.
At FSU, the FCI is bringing together faculty, postdocs, and students to collectively address fundamental and applied climate research questions.
Florida Climate Institute-Florida State University Seasonal Hindcasts at 50km resolution (FISH50) is the retrospective global seasonal forecasts conducted using the atmospheric Florida Climate Institute Global Spectral Model (FGSM).
The datasets consist of two main components: downscaling of Global Reanalyses for the period 1979-2000, and downscaling of Global Climate Models for the periods 1968-2000 and 2038-2070.
