Bias-corrected daily precipitation at 1-kilometer resolution for Puerto Rico from Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) dynamical downscaled historical (1985-2005) and projected (2040-60) climate

August 8, 2022

This data release consists of four network Common Data Form (netCDF) files of bias-corrected daily precipitation at 1-kilometer (km) scale for historical and projected climate of Puerto Rico. The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model was used by Bowden and others (2018) to downscale two general circulation models (GCMs) from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5 (CMIP5): (1) the Community Climate System Model (CCSM4 or CESM), and (2) the Centre National de Recherches Meteorologiques-CERFACS (CNRM). The two models were dynamically downscaled using WRF for a historical (1985-2005) time slice and a future time slice (2040–60) under the high greenhouse gas emission scenario known as Representative Concentration Pathway [...]
