NEX-GDDP dataset over Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (2000–2009, 2090–2099)

NEX-GDDP dataset over Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (2000–2009, 2090–2099)


This dataset includes daily minimum temperature (Tmin), maximum temperature (Tmax) and precipitation (PPT) data of NEX-GDDP (NASA Earth Exchange Global Daily Downscaled Projections) (v1.0) over the periods of 2000–2009 and 2090–2099. The unit of Tmax and Tmin is K, and the unit of PPT is kgm-2s-1; the background filling value is -999. This dataset is a subset extraction fromthe original data. The original data was downloaded from https://portal.nccs.nasa.gov/datashare/NEXGDDP/BCSD/ in August 2020; The NEX-GDDP data set is obtained from CMIP5 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5) historical climate and General Circulation Models (General Circulation Models) operating in RCP (Representative Concentration Pathways) 4.5 scenario mode, including 21 atmospheric circulation models; among them, 2000 –2005 is a historical climate scenario, and 2006–2009 and 2090-2099 are RCP 4.5 scenarios. For the description of the original data, please refer to https://www.nccs.nasa.gov/services/data-collections/land-based-products/nex-gddp.


File naming and required software

This files containing the data in the Geotiff format with one file per model per year per variable. The filename structure is "Variable_MODEL_yyyy_TP.tiff", where Variable represents the variable name (Tmin, Tmax or PPT), MODEL represents the model name (21 atmospheric circulation models), yyyy represents the year, and TP represents the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. For example, "Tmin_ACCESS1-0_2000_TP.TIF" represents the daily minimum temperature data obtained from ACCESS1-0 model over Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in 2000. Method to read data: open with remote-sensing software such as ArgGIS and ENVI.
