IMPORTANT: Precipitation data for ISI-MIP2

Posted on Sept. 29, 2014

It has come to our attention that a mistake has occurred in the preparation of the precipiation data for the WATCH historical dataset.  The original version of the data published by us on the DRKZ server contained the variable pr, which mistakenly only included rainfall.  This was a mistake since we define pr as the total precipitation (rainfall + snowfall). 

New files have been prepared (for the observational period as well for the spin-up), where pr contains total precipitation, and prsn contains the snowfall component only, and are now available on the DRKZ server.

We apologise sincerely for this inconvenience, especially for those who have already been using the WATCH data to run their simulations.  Should this mean that it is no longer realistic for you to submit your data by the 30 November deadline, please get in touch and let us know.
