Description :
WRF-CORDEX simulations on the European EUR-44 domain at 44 kms resolution. The version of the WRF model is 3.8.1 (Advance Research WRF dynamics (Skamarock et al 2008.)) forced by ERA-interim for the control run and CCSM4 for the scenarios. 4 sets of data are therefore available: the control run over the period 1979-2016, the historical run over the period 1951-2005, the climate projections from 2006 to 2100.
The parameterizations used are as follows:
PBL: YSU (Hong et al., 2006) for WRF360L_v1.
Cumulus: Kain-Fritsch (Kain, 2004)
Microphysics: Morrison 2-mom (Morrison, Thompson and Tatarskii (2009, MWR)
Radiation: RRTMG for SW and LW (Iacono et al 2008 JGR)
Soil: Noah_mp (Niu et al. 2011)
Aerosol: Prescribed Tegen et al. (1997).
