CCAM Climate Downscaling Data for Victoria 2019

Dynamically downscaled climate simulations for Victoria from 1961 to 2099 using the Conformal Cubic Atmospheric Model (CCAM) r3355. An ensemble of Global Climate Models were downscaled (ACCESS1-0, CNRM-CM5, GFDL-ESM2M, HadGEM2, MIROC5 and NorESM1-M) from the CMIP5 archive for historical, RCP4.5 and RCP8.5, as well as downscaling ERA-Interim.

Downscaling Regional climate modelling climate projections

This project was funded and supported by Wine Australia, Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, the University of Tasmania (R Harris) and CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere. This work was undertaken with resources from the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) supported by the Australian Government; and the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre supported by the Australian Government and the Government of Western Australia. We acknowledge the World Climate Research Programme's Working Group on Coupled Modelling, responsible for CMIP, and we thank the modelling groups for producing and making available their data. The U.S. Department of Energy's Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison provides coordinating support for CMIP and software infrastructure in partnership with the Global Organization for Earth System Science Portals. We acknowledge the use of ERA-Interim as described by Dee, et al (2011),. Q.J.R. Meteorol. Soc., 137: 553–597. doi: 10.1002/qj.828

About this Project

DELWP Vic Climate Science Data

This project dynamically downscaled 6 CMIP5 GCMs for RCP4.5 and RCP8.5, after bias correcting the Sea Surface Temperatures, to 5 km resolution over Victoria from 1961 to 2099. This work was to support regional projections of climate change for Victoria that could be used for planning and adaptation purposes by the Victorian Government and by the A... more
