Dynamic downscaling simulation data set nested between global climate model and WRF model (1995-2060)

Dynamic downscaling simulation data set nested between global climate model and WRF model (1995-2060)

This data set is the result of dynamic downscaling simulation of CORDEX region 8 (Central Asia) using WRF model driven by MPI-ESM-HR1.2 model data in CMIP6 plan. The data include 2m temperature (variable T2) and precipitation and precipitation was divided into convective (variable RAINC) and non-convective (variable RAINNC) precipitation. The time period includes historical test (1995-2014), near future (2021-2040) and medium future (2041-2060). The future time period includes SSP1-2.6 and SSP5-8.5. The time resolution of the simulation is once every 6 hours, the spatial resolution is 25km, the number of vertical layers is 51, a whole year in 1994 is used as spin up, the SST update is used, and the parameterized scheme combination with good performance in this area is selected. The data set can better reflect the future climate change characteristics of Central Asia and the Qinghai Tibet Plateau, and provide guidance for relevant countries to adapt to climate change.

File naming and required software

The data is divided into three folders, namely MPI_historical_1994_2014, MPI_ssp126_2015_2060 and MPI_ssp585_2015_2060 represents the simulation results of historical test, future ssp1-2.6 scenario and future ssp5-8.5 scenario respectively. The file format in each folder is wrfout_yyyy.nc, where yyyy stands for year. Like wrfout_1995.nc this document represents the results of 2m temperature and precipitation simulated in 1995. All files are in NetCDF format and can be read by relevant software that can read NC files. Apart from the three folders, there is one more file named terrain_height.nc, in which variable HGT means the terrain height (This variable is constant so I just chose the result in 1995.1.1.00).
