CLM4.5 GFDL-ESM2M extended picontrol run (1861-2099) were not
kept at a constant, pre-industrial level. Instead, a constant,
present-day value of 367 ppmv was used. Those runs were replaced at both, DKRZ storage and ESGF.This is an update to this caveat entry.
In WaterGAP2, an inconsistent handling of total actual water consumption (atotuse) has been detected, which leads to negative values of water consumption. For a more detailed description please see Caveat_WaterGAP2_atotuse.pdfCaveat_WaterGAP2_atotuse.pdf.The model owners recommend setting these negative values to zero.
PCR-GLOBWB reported the variable tws in values corresponding to a mass flux rate (kg/m2/s), although it is actually mass per area (kg/m2). The values should be multiplied by 86400 in order to obtain the correct tws values in kg/m2.
The picontrol run (exp. I) of CLM4.5 based on GFDL-ESM2M has been deleted and will be replaced soon. The run used an incorrect CO2 concentration (constant present-day values, instead of pre-industrial ones).EDIT: This issue has been resolved, see here.
The variable pirrww has been corrected for the models LPJmL and pDSSAT in order to reflect the correct variable definition according to the protocol. This was achieved by applying correction factors (see general remark on crop models pirrww variable).To achieve this pDSSAT values for maize, soy and wheat were multiplied by 0.75.
Some ISIMIP2a simulations were erroneously labelled with "nosoc", these have now been corrected:"nosoc" files from the impact models LPJ-GUESS, ORCHIDEE, JULES-UoE have been relabelled to "varsoc""nosoc" files from the impact model VISIT have been relabelled to "pressoc"
For all ISIMIP2b simulations for the model CLM45, the historical simulations are not fully consistent with the simulation protocol. For the

In October, 2016, the CARAIB runs using the Princeton forcing data for the 'nat' scenario were replaced. In February, 2016, the runs using the Princeton forcing data for the 'pressoc' scenario were deleted. In the case that these data were downloaded prior to deletion, they should be considered invalid and not be used.
All BOATS GCM driven data for fishing runs (GFDL-ESM2M & IPSL-CM5A-LR, for all 4 RCPs.) have been replaced.In the old BOATS runs, fishing effort was not kept constant after 2005, which had created some wiggles in the future runs. This has been changed now, resulting in more smooth trajectories.
Do to several inconsistencies in the original model data, the following files were replaced on 19 December, 2017:EwE (adriatic-sea): all filesEwE (baltic-sea): all GFDL-ESM2M files, all IPSL-CM5A-LR rcp45 and rcp60 IPSL filesEwE (east-bass-strait): all IPSL-CM5A-LR filesEwE (med-glob):

All ISIMIP2b ORCHIDEE biomes files for the variable burntarea were
replaced. The new monthly burntarea data are identical to the formerly
published monthly burntarea data, multiplied by the number of days per
month and capped at 100%. The new files are consistent with the protocol
definition of monthly burntarea.
Other than the files mentioned in the entry ISIMIP2b: Water (global) JULES-W1 hadgem2-es_rcp26_2005soc_co2 2006-2099 files replaced the files from the JULES-W1 model are missing the final time step of data.

The missing values have now been replaced by valid data.HistoryPosted by Jacob Schewe on July 6, 2017Note that a number of land grid cells are filled with missing values (NaN) in
the MATSIRO varsoc results, even for runoff and discharge. See the
attached maps and table and the map below for the locations of these cells (example for the
The grid shift in the LPJ-GUESS Fast-Track data has now been corrected. HistoryJune 19, 2017The simulation data from LPJ-GUESS for the agriculture sector have been found to be incorrectly shifted by one cell north east. This issue has not been corrected and applies to the data stored on the ESGF and DKRZ servers.
The following files have been removed due to a problem with pre-processing:ipsl-cm5a-lr/future_extended/orchidee_ipsl-cm5a-lr_picontrol_2005soc_co2_csoil_global_annual_2100_2299.nc4ipsl-cm5a-lr/future_extended/orchidee_ipsl-cm5a-lr_picontrol_2005soc_co2_cveg_global_annual_2100_2299.nc4ipsl-cm5a-lr/future_extended/orchidee_ipsl-cm5a-lr_picontrol_2..
The routing scheme in the DBH model has been modified, resulting in an update to the daily discharge data for the nosoc and varsoc simulations. In the new data, the routing model was run with a sub-daily step instead of the previous daily step to obtain smoother daily discharge.
The biomes simulations from DLEM using the climate input from IPSL-CM5A-LR have been replaced. For the new simulations, DLEM used a different strategy to reach the equilibrium
state. Small differences can be expected between old and new IPSL runs.
The new strategy was already used for the simulations using the climate input from GFDL and MIROC5.
Average wheat yields in some individual (clusters of) grid cells
exhibit a systematic difference between the historical run and the
other (picontrol, RCP) runs. See the attached map and timeseries plots
for an illustration of the issue. A potential reason may be that the
model grows winter wheat in the one case, and spring wheat in the
The ISIMIP2a oceanic input data from
GFDL (both reana and scen) has an irregular grid north of 65°N and had
not been correctly regridded. Therefore the corresponding outputs from the marine ecosystems and fisheries models in that
region are flawed.
A variable name change has been applied to CARAIBs pft and frc data at DKRZ today:frc -> pftpft -> pft-2storeysThe reason behind is to have the CARAIB data more comparable to PFT from other biomes models. Please read the variable description below explaining the difference between frc (now pft) and pft (now pft-2storeys)The variable pft-2st..
Shifts in LPJmL and LPJ-GUESS files have been

PFT specific gpp and npp data have been retracted from the DKRZ server on March 9th, 2017. LPJmL group discovered PFT-specific GPP and NPP of the "c3_perennial_grass" PFT and "c4_perennial_grass" PFT to contain wrong values under certain circumstances. While the PFT-specific GPP and NPP outputs for all the other PFTs should be fine they think it ..
Three files from JULES-TUC were replaced. The problem was in the ET files during the aggregation of the

Fixes for an inconsistency between the
river network and the location of dams and reservoirs as well as a small
error in the spin-up procedure that affected our runs for all 4
forcing data sets. In addition, the updated results for the
Princeton forcing data set are based on the corrected version of the
input data now.

Now using new model version ORCHIDEE rev3013.
rev3013 includes a 11-layer soil diffusion model. This scheme is
expected to have a more explicit presentation of soil water properties,
and to affect carbon cycles.
