EWEMBI global meteorological forcing data processed for ISIMIP2a. Contains EWEMBI data and data from the GSWP3 dataset, developed by Hyungjun Kim with support by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science KAKENHI (16H06291).

Original EWEMBI data covers the entire globe at 0.5° horizontal and daily temporal resolution from 1979 to 2016 (http://doi.org/10.5880/pik.2019.004).

In order to minimize discontinuities at the 1978/1979 transition, GSWP3 data were homogenized with EWEMBI data using the ISIMIP2BASD v2.3 bias adjustment method (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3648654).

**ISIMIP3a update**: In order to minimize discontinuities at the 1978/1979 transition, GSWP3 data were homogenized with EWEMBI data using the ISIMIP2BASD v2.4.1 bias adjustment method. For further information, see:
