  • This experiment (2006-2100) uses 'CMIP5 GFDL r1i1p1 rcp45' forcing data for downscaling to 60km resolution by the regional model WRFV3.5.1 for the region of West Africa. 'rcp45' is an experiment of the CMIP5 - Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (https://pcmdi.llnl.gov/mips/cmip5). 4.1 rcp45 (4.1 RCP4.5) - future projection (2006-2300) forced by RCP4.5. Experiment design:https://cera-www.dkrz.de/WDCC/ui/Entry.jsp?acronym=Taylor_CMIP5_design.pdf . This experiment is divided into several time slices of 11 years. The first year of each time slice is used as a spin-up phase and should not be used in the analysis. All experiments with GFDL forcing refer to a calendar with 365 days (noleap). The 60 km resolution of this experiment is an intermediate step to the 12km downscaling WRF experiment.

  • This experiment (2006-2100) uses the data from the WRF60_gfdlesm_rcp45 experiment as forcing data for downscaling to 12 km resolution by the regional model WRFV3.5.1 for the region of West Africa.

The first year of each time slice is used as a spin-up phase and should not be used in the analysis. All experiments with GFDL forcing refer to a calendar with 365 days (noleap). The 12 km resolution of this experiment is the second step of the two step downscaling WRF experiment.

  • This experiment uses the data from the WRF60_mpiesm_historical experiment as forcing data for downscaling to 12km resolution by the regional model WRFV3.5.1 for the region of West Africa. 'historical' is an experiment of the CMIP5 - Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (https://pcmdi.llnl.gov/mips/cmip5). 3.2 historical (3.2 Historical) - Version 1: Simulation of recent past (1850 to 2005). Experiment design:https://cera-www.dkrz.de/WDCC/ui/Entry.jsp?acronym=Taylor_CMIP5_design.pdf . This experiment is divided into several time slices of 11 years. The first year of each time slice is used as a spin-up phase and should not be used in the analysis. All experiments with MPIESM forcing refer to a Gregorian calendar. The 12 km resolution of this experiment is the second step of the two step downscaling WRF experiment.
