Extended GSWP3-W5E5 climate input datasets partly available

Posted by Martin Park on April 28, 2020

Dear ISIMIP community,

The HEALTH sector has reached out to us and asked for a temporal extension of the ISIMIP3a GSWP3-W5E5 climate input datasets (obsclim and counterclim), which currently end in 2016. While we are unable to do this for all variables due to as yet missing precipitation observations and not yet implemented calculation for extending surface wind, we now provide the requested extension to years 2017 and 2018 for all other variables.

The new data are available from the subdirectories of SecondaryInputData. We will leave them there until we have extended the entire datasets, which is expected to be happen by end of June 2020.

Thanks for your patience and cheers,

the ISIMIP coordination team
