Summary
The regional climate model REMO has been used to simulate future climate of Germany for different climate scenarios (IPCC).
The simulations have been initiated by Umweltbundesamt (P. Mahrenholz) and performed by Max-Planck-Institute for Meteorology (D. Jacob).
The use of the data is possible after acceptance of the user conditions. A special user contract has to be signed, contact remo-daten@dkrz.de for further details.

The experiment REMO_UBA_A1B_D3 starts 2001 and calculates in 0.088 deg. horizontal resolution the future climate of the IPCC scenario A1B from 2001 to 2100.
For initialization and as boundary condition the coarse REMO IPCC consortial run (REMO_IPCC044_A1B_1_R001501) in 0.44 degree horizontal resolution is used.
The A1B scenario describes a possible future world of very rapid economic growth, global population peaking in mid-century and rapid introduction of new and more efficient technologies. A balance across all energy sources is assumed.

In data stream 3 (D3) a part of the output variables of REMO and additionally derived quantities are stored as time series in netCDF format.
Data stream 3 is derotated and interpolated (bilinear interpolation using CDO routines) on a regular geographical grid with 0.1 degree horizontal resolution. For some model variables statistics on daily, monthly and yearly basis are available.

The model domain covers Germany starting at 45.85/3.95 (lat/lon, lower left corner) with an increment of 0.1 degrees. The number of grid points is 92/134 (lat/lon).

After interpolation the cutout of the model domain has been chosen in a way that the river Rhine and Switzerland are lying completely in the model domain. Therefore there exist missing values at the western and southern boundary which are set on -9.x10**33. All surface quantities are not corrected in height. The correction in height is necessary for comparisons with observational data particularly for mountainous terrain.
