Input data set: HadGEM2-ES (rcp45)

Future (2006-2099) conditions provided based on CMIP5 output from HadGEM2-ES.

These data are analogous to the data described here: but for the this RCP not included in the ISIMIP2b simulation protocol.

Data Type: Simulated atmospheric climate
Simulation rounds: ISIMIP2b
Scenarios: rcp45
Variables: tasmax, tas, tasmin, uas, rlds, hurs, huss, sfcWind, vas, psl, prsn, pr

Model data has been bias corrected by applying an updated version of the method used in the ISIMIP Fast Track, where a composite dataset 'EWEMBI' was used as the target observational data set. Detailed information can be found in the bias-correction fact sheet here:

Time period included is 2006 to 2099

Data source

Original GCM data have been extracted from the CMIP5 archive.
