Historical/future 500m daily BC downscaled climate data

Description:

GCM and ESM outputs for British Columbia with two representative concentration pathway scenarios 4.5 and 8.5 were statistically downscaled onto the 10km national NRCanMet grid using the Bias-Corrected Constructed Analogues with Quantile mapping reordering (BCCAQ) algorithm to produce daily climate surfaces for 1961-2100.  Outputs were then spatially disaggregated and bias corrected in the same manner as the historical NRCanMet dataset.  Five CMIP5 models include ACCESS, CanESM2, CNRM-CM5, CSIRO Mk3.5, and INMCM4, were utilized.
