The regional climate model REMO has been used to simulate today's and 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
for further details. The experiment REMO_UBA_C20_D3 starts 1960 and calculates in 0.088 degree horizontal resolution today's climate from 1960 to 2000. For initialization and as boundary condition the coarse REMO IPCC consortial run (REMO_IPCC044_C20_1_R001500) in 0.44 degree horizontal resolution is used. 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 stream3 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.
