Dummy data

Dummy data are mock, test data used to create some of the UKCP09 case studies. Dummy data is not based on real use and has been used for demonstration purposes only. Case studies that are based on dummy data are labelled as such.

In detail

Dummy data were a set of mock results provided to demonstrate how UKCP09 products could be used prior to the release of the final UKCP09 outputs. These mock results were limited in scope and were only provided for temperature and precipitation, for one Emissions scenarios and for one Time period.

Case studies using dummy data should be seen as illustrative examples of how output from UKCP09 might be used, rather than examples of best practice.
