MITJP-MSD: Large-ensemble 21st century monthly hydro-climatological forcing dataset PFCOV
Gao, Xiang; Sokolov, Andrei; Schlosser, Adam
Large-ensemble 21st century monthly hydro-climatological forcing dataset for the Paris Forever (PFCOV) scenario. The PFCOV scenario assumes that all Paris Agreement Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are implemented through the year 2030 and maintained in perpetuity after that. While our PFCOV scenario represents an unprecedented global commitment to limit greenhouse gas emissions, it neither stabilizes climate nor limits climate change. The dataset consists of a 900-member ensemble, which is constructed by spatially disaggregating a 50-member ensemble of the MIT IGSM zonal climate projections based on hydroclimate change patterns from the 18 CMIP6 climate models. The dataset contains nine key meteorological variables on a monthly scale from 2021 to 2100 at a spatial resolution of 0.5°x 0.5°, including precipitation, air temperature (mean, minimum and maximum), near-surface wind speed, shortwave and longwave radiation, specific humidity, and relative humidity. The abbreviations of the variables are listed as below: precipitation (Prep), air temperature (mean (Tair), minimum (Tmin) and maximum (Tmax)), near-surface wind speed (WIND), shortwave (FSDS) and longwave (FLDS) radiation, specific humidity (Huss), and relative humidity (Hurs).
