Fast-Track Bias Correction


The manuscript “A trend-preserving bias correction -- the ISIMIP approach” by S. Hempel et al. is published in ESD and describes the method used to bias correct the climate data provided for use in the ISIMIP Fast Track. We kindly ask you to cite this paper whenever you use the ISIMIP Fast-Track input data within your project and it should serve as the main reference when you mention the use of bias-correction in ISIMIP.

We used the Watch data set to bias-correct the GCM data from CMIP5 with kind permission by the WATCH project. See Weedon et al. (2011), J. Hydrometeor., 12, 823–848, doi: 10.1175/2011JHM1369.1 for documentation.
