USA-centered “quasi-warming” climate model dataDescription:
This dataset is from a high resolution climate change simulation that permits convection and resolves mesoscale orography at 4 km grid spacing over much of North America using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model. Two 13 years simulations were performed, consisting of a retrospective simulation (October 2000 to September 2013) with initial and boundary conditions from ERA-Interim and a future climate sensitivity simulation with initial and boundary conditions derived from reanalysis and modified by adding the CMIP5 ensemble mean of the high emission scenario climate change.
