The ISIMIP2b scenarios are designed to elicit the contribution of climate change to impacts arising from low-emissions climate-change scenarios. Pre-industrial control runs are included to facilitate statistical comparison with a no-climate-change case.
The scientific rationale for the scenario design has been document in the GMD discussions paper "Assessing the impacts of 1.5°C global warming – simulation protocol of the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP2b)" by Frieler, et al.
