Description of future water abstraction data updated


Posted by Lila Warszawski on Jan. 30, 2017

The description of the future water abstraction for industrial and domestic uses data has been updated and now reads:

"For modelling groups that do not have their own representation, we provide files containing the multi-model mean (from WaterGAP, PCR-GLOBWB and H08) for domestic and industrial uses under SSP2 from the Water Futures and Solutions (WFaS) (Wada et al., 2016) project.

Since this data is only available until 2050, the values should be kept constant from 2050 onwards.

Also, the data provided for rcp26soc and rcp60soc are identical and both taken from simulations based on RCP6.0. RCP2.6 was not considered by WFaS. The difference is expected to be small compared to the influence of socio-economic conditions."
