ISIMIP2b: Future, gridded population data

Posted by Felix John on July 10, 2018

The original sources for observations and projections of spatially-explicit population data differ in spatial resolution

and are independently calibrated. Hence, population values for specific grid points can vary significantly between observations and projections, even when smoothing the data with a 5-year linear interpolation between 2005 and 2010. When conducting spatially-explicit impact analysis, please take this uncertainty into account.
