The dynamically downscaled data (lower) captures realistic temperature patterns while the global model (upper) data is too coarse to use for villages or even cities in Alaska. In the global model, each square is about 150 miles on one side. In the dynamically downscaled data, each square is about 12 miles on one side. Dynamically downscaled data is produced at a scale that shows the fine differences in conditions from one location to the next.
