Updates of the ISIMIP2b protocol

Posted by Martin Park on May 27, 2020

Dear ISIMIP community,

we would like to draw you attention to a few updates we did to the ISIMIP2b protocol, besides many smaller things:

Water (global/regional):
triver was added: mean monthly water temperature in river (representative of the average temperature across the channel volume) as output variable with the following specifications: K, monthly, 0.5°x0.5°

<dbhclass/total> was removed from the forestry output data table: dbh_classes should now be reported as another dimension within the netcdf file.

- "nosoc" was included as option for experiments I, II, III and VIII in the respective scenarios table (table 11).
- the ocean regions table for regional fisheries was updated and regions for which there are no simulations were removed. Additionally, short names were modified to match those in the filenames.

Take care and best greetings,
the ISIMIP team at PIK.
