Length of the Growing Season (41°F Threshold)

LOCA simulations of the 30-year mean annual length of the growing-season, using a 41°F threshold (growing-season-41F). The length of the growing season is defined as the number of days between the last occurrence of a minimum temperature at or below 41°F in the spring and the first occurrence of a minimum temperature at or below 41°F in the fall. Grid points with more than 10 of the 30 years not experiencing an occurrence of 41°F or lower are excluded from the analysis. Maps are presented for the “Historical Climate”, “Lower Emissions”, “Higher Emissions”, and “Upper Bound”, as described below. Graphs are also presented depicting the multi-model mean and 5-95th percentile model distributions of “growing-season” under both higher and lower emissions for two urban areas, as described below. Units for all figures are number of days.
