Description :
This data-set concerns the regionalization at 12km resolution of the two Radiative Pathways Projection RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 simulated by the CCSM4 Earth System Model. This dynamic downscaling experiment uses the ARW/WRF model version 3.8.1 run in climate mode. The simulation were conducted by the CRC team of the Biogéosciences lab within the framework of both the ANR CoSAC and PSDR Prosys projects. The experimental set-up uses two embedded domains with a resolution of 48km and 12km respectively. The selected physical schemes follow the experimental protocol described in Boulard et al. 2016. The data are available for the period 1980-2100 at daily time step. Note that for surface temperature and rainfall a quantile-mapping post-correction has been applied.
