CERA project information for High Resolution dynamically downscaled CMIP5 climate data over India

Acronym
NMCG_DSCESM_climate_INDIA
Name
High Resolution dynamically downscaled CMIP5 climate data over India
Description
The datasets in this project are developed as a part of a project associated with the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India, and the National Mission for Clean Ganga, Government of India. We have dynamically downscaled a coarser resolution CMIP5 GCM (CESMv1) climate data using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model for the current (2006-2015) and future (2091-2100) RCP8.5 emission scenario to produce a 10km resolution dataset over India. This dataset is expected to be of massive value to fine-scale regional modelling based climate change adaptive and mitigative studies in fields of water resources, energy, agriculture, and forestry over India. This project is financially supported by the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG), Ministry of Jal Shakti, Department of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, Government of India, through grant number TE-16015/02/2019/NMCG.
