Update on ISIMIP2b simulation data availability


Posted by Lila Warszawski on Oct. 19, 2017

With the IPCC Special Report submission deadline in just under 2 weeks(!), we would like to give you an update on the availability of ISIMIP2b simulation data, which can be downloaded and used by anyone, so long as the terms of use are adhered to.

Below is a list of models that have uploaded data to date for Group 1 & 2 experiments. You can find more detail about which experiments have been submitted, please use the searchable output-data table. Data from models in italics have not yet passed the formal format (quality) check. All other data are available for download on the DKRZ server are also available to the public via the ESG server - please feel free to share this link in your networks.

3 Agriculture models
LPJmL, PEPIC, GEPIC
7 Biomes models
CARAIB, LPJ-GUESS, ORCHIDEE, VEGAS, VISIT, DLEM, CLM4.5
12 Forests models
3D-CMCC, 4C, ANAFORE, BASFOR, CARAIB, ForClim, FORMIND, GOPLUS, GOTILWA+, HiFi-SM, Landscape-DNDC, LPJ-GUESS
9 Water (global) models
CLM4.5, H08, LPJmL, PCR-GLOBWB, JULES-W1, DBH, ORCHIDEE, MPI-HM, WaterGAP2
2 Water (regional) models
mHM, SWAT
1 Permafrost model
CLM4.5
1 Temperature-related mortality model
Globally-gridded heat-related mortality

Please be aware that the data are subject to change, and you should always check with the individual modelling groups that you are using the most up-to-date version before finalising the analysis for a publication. We also do our best to notify of any changes to already-checked data.

At this point we would also like to communicate, that according to the coordinating lead author of the impacts chapter of the IPCC 1.5°C, the 31 October paper submission deadline is very strict.

Thank you to all those modelling groups who have made the huge effort to upload data in time to be used in papers directed at the 1.5°C special report! Thanks also to Matthias Büchner & Jan Volkholz for their dedicated efforts in ensuring the consistency of file formats.

Please keep in mind that the archive will remain open for additional simulations well beyond the relevant time frame for the special report, so if you are still intending to submit simulations, please do! We expect that the ISIMIP2b data will remain an important resource for the IPCC 6th Assessment Report and other publications over the coming years.
