Summary

CESM1 (CAM5) Large Ensemble Community Project: The CESM community is coordinating the production of a large ensemble using a 1-degree version of CESM1(CAM5) (0.9x1.25_gx1v6, IPCC AR5 model). Ensemble members go from 1920 to 2100 using historical forcing (1920-2005) and RCP8.5 forcing (2006-2100). Ensemble spread is generated using round-off differences in the initial atmospheric state.

/data/ch2011

Summary

The Swiss Climate Change Scenarios CH2011 data provides an assessment of how temperature and precipitation may change over the 21st century in Switzerland. The dataset consists of three parts:

Regional scenarios of seasonal means: Climate change scenarios of seasonal mean temperature and precipitation calculated for four seasons, three regions, three scenario periods and three greenhouse gas emission scenarios.

Regional scenarios at daily resolution: Daily scenarios derived from the CH2011 climate scenarios of seasonal means. For each region, each scenario period and each emission scenario, the four seasonal mean changes of the individual projection estimates were transformed into a continuous annual cycle.

Local scenarios at daily resolution: Daily scenarios of temperature and precipitation changes at MeteoSwiss observational station sites for each day of the year, for the three scenario periods and ten individual GCM-RCM model chains. Only the A1B emission scenario is covered

The preprocessing for cordex.ch2025 contains 3 steps. 1. Stitching together historical and rcps to continuous time series from 1971-2099 (outcome are files ending with *_CH202X.nc) 2. Regridding to EUR-11/EUR-44 grids for a few models where this is necessary (e.g. CNRM, RMIB, ICTP, MPI-CSC, UHOH-WRF) 3. Forcing the grid definition to be identical (cdo setgrid) adding metadata for MCH (e.g. ncks -A -v lon,lat in ncatted -O -a coordinates,,o,c,"lon lat") (files ending in *_CH202X_grid.nc)

Summary

ENSEMBLES daily gridded observational dataset for precipitation, temperature and sea level pressure in Europe (E-OBS). This data is the full ensemble (100 members), which is the base of the data found under /data/E-OBS, and contains daily mean temperature TG, daily minimum temperature TN, daily maximum temperature TX, daily precipitation sum RR and daily averaged sea level pressure PP.

This covers the entire globe, with missing values filled with nan. In addition it re-organises the file structure from annual files with all ensemble members to individual files per member for all time steps. Variable are renamed to the CMIP standard.

/data/era5_cds

Summary

ERA5 is the fifth generation ECMWF reanalysis for the global climate and weather for the past 8 decades. Data is available from 1940 onwards. ERA5 replaces the ERA-Interim reanalysis.

Reanalysis combines model data with observations from across the world into a globally complete and consistent dataset using the laws of physics. This principle, called data assimilation, is based on the method used by numerical weather prediction centres, where every so many hours (12 hours at ECMWF) a previous forecast is combined with newly available observations in an optimal way to produce a new best estimate of the state of the atmosphere, called analysis, from which an updated, improved forecast is issued. Reanalysis works in the same way, but at reduced resolution to allow for the provision of a dataset spanning back several decades.

v? contains processed files which have CMIP variable names and the same filename structure as cmip?-ng files. v0 was the first ad-hoc version using files in daily and monthly folders, changing variable names etc. in the command line and data until 2015. v1 is an update, processed using /home/rlorenz/scripts/postproc_merra2/proc_daily_monthly_avg_MERRA2.sh and contains data until end of 2018. v1 uses conservative2 remapping instead of billinear (in accordance with CMIP6-ng), regridding happens at the very end (after calculating rsus and rlds for instance) and there is a slight difference in rsus compared to v0 (reason?).

/data/plot-data.ch2018

Summary

The directory plot-data.ch2018 is a repository for the data underlying standard barplots and maps for CH2018.

The directories are structured according to the report chapters and data products. Please save your data in the appropriate directory, and contact the CH2018 project coordinators if it is not clear which it is. Also, please refrain from using or modifying data from other authors. The saved data are synchronized between the two servers daily.

CH2018 plot data format specification

This describes the format of the base data of standard CH2018 plots (maps and barplots). Data files are to be produced for

● All standard barplots and maps shown in the report ● All other combinations of scenarios, periods, etc. (not shown in the report, but maybe in Appendix or on the website) ● The reference period, which should be provided even if it is not shown.

Barplots

Plain text, one file with one comma-separated table for each plot: one quantity, scenario, and region, for all seasons and periods, including the reference period). Each row contains data for one simulation of the combined multimodel ensemble (26 simulations in all). Provide absolute quantities for the reference period, and absolute changes for the scenario periods (not %). Include the name of the file creator, and the long name of the quantity and its unit as comments (see below).

Filename: __.csv

example: TXx_rcp85_CHNE.csv

Maps of gridded data

Netcdf, one file per plot plus one file for the reference period: ensemble median of one quantity for one scenario and period. Provide absolute quantities for the reference period, and absolute changes for the scenario periods (not %). Include the name of the file creator, and the long name of the quantity and its unit as comments (see below).

The median is to be computed with the method by C. Schär to combine resolutions, based on the set of 26 simulations, complemented with pattern scaled data for RCP8.5 and RCP4.5.

Filename: __.nc

example: TXx_rcp85_2020-2049.nc

Metadata: the netcdf meta data must contain the short and long name of the quantity, the unit, and the name of the file’s creator with the tag “CH2018_author”, for example:

cdo setname,Tas in.nc out.nc ncatted -O -a long_name,Tas,o,c,"Near-Surface Air Temperature" out.nc ncatted -O -a units,Tas,o,c,"degC" out.nc cdo setgatt,creator,”Curdin Spirig” out.nc Tas_rcp85_1981-2010.nc

/data/ps.ch2018-freeze-2.0

Summary

This directory contains the pattern scaled CORDEX-RCM data for EUR-11 (0.11 degrees horizontal resolution) and EUR-44 (0.44 degrees). Information for scenarios which have not been modeled are gained by pattern scaling. Here we used the time shift approach to provide information for RCP 4.5 and RCP 2.6 and for each time period (2020-2049, 2045-2074 and 2070-2099). The data basis is the CH2018 model data freeze-1.2 to be found under ../cordex.ch2018-freeze1.2. Pattern scaled time series are provided for daily data and for the following variables:

/data/s2s_forecasts

Summary

Forecast and hindcast data from the S2S prediction project downloaded from ECMWF's MARS archive. Data is interpolated (before the retrieval) to a 1x1 degree grid. This is mostly to be able to easily validate the data with ERA-Interim and ERA5 (which are stored on the same grid here on the IAC servers) on a grid box level. Note that the different models have different native resolutions however; some finer than 1x1 degree but some also coarser.

(update on 2023-03-08: to maximise storage efficiency, data has been downloaded in 1.5x1.5 degrees - the default download horizontal resolution as provided from MARS archive)

The directory contains hindcasts and real-time forecasts in the respective sub-directories. Within each of these, data from single models is saved. Inside the model sub-directories, the data is split between surface fields (/sfc/) and fields on pressure levels (/pl/). Each of of those directories contains data for single parameters. The grib files within each of those directories are named ___.grb, where indicated the parameter (including the pressure level for /pl/ files), the initialization date, the date of the model version and an indicator whether the file contains the single control forecast (ending _cf) or the perturbed forecast ensemble (ending _pf).

This database is far from complete. Right now it contains hindcast and some real-time forecast data of several parameters at the surface (/sfc/) and on pressure levels (/pl/).

The folder ECMWF_EU_CH/ contains surface variables, e.g. t2m, for forecasts and hindcasts for the year 2022 for Europe. Please refer to the README inside the folder for more details.
