Summary
This dataset group contains the regionalised seasonal forecasts for the SaWaM study domain D03 (Tekeze-Atbara and Blue Nile Basins, Sudan and Ethiopia). The data is based on the latest seasonal forecast product SEAS5 from the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecast (ECMWF), which has been Bias-Corrected and Spatially Disaggregated (BCSD) towards the ERA5-Land high-resolution replay of the land component of ECMWF's ERA5 climate reanalysis. It hence provides a temporally and spatially consistent set of land surface variables for driving e.g. hydrological models or assessing the regional forecast skill of seasonal forecasts.

Currently, the dataset group contains daily and monthly ensemble (re)forecasts during the period 1981 to 2019. In particular, each forecast with 25 (before 2017) and 51 (since 2017) ensemble members contains daily and monthly forecasts for precipitation, maximum, minimum, and average temperature as well as radiation from the issue date for the next 215 days.
