Dataset: CSIRO Dawn to 2100 SRESA2 pr - GCM Precipitation flux datasets and trends 1850 to 2100 using the SRESA2 Scenario


The CSIRO Dawn-2100 archive contains datasets for atmospheric, land and oceanographic variables for the approximate period 1850 - 2100 (dependent on model). These have been created through the concatenation of 20th century (20C3M) and other scenario (currently SRESA1B or SRESA2) data from a number of the 25 differant global climate models (GCM) from various countries. The SRESA2_pr dataset contains the Precipitation flux variable for various GCM's and runs (multiple runs being averaged to a single file if existing) under the scenario SRESA2 emissions 2001 to 2100. These variables have also been further analysed to give monthly, seasonal and annual trend data, calculated from a monthly timeseries referenced to the area-weighted mean global warming values. 19 GCM models are available with data for variables being in 12 month, annual and 4 seasons(DJF, MAM,JJA,SON) format with 37 files totaling 5.22 GB as Netcdf files. Available for internal use and analysis by CSIRO staff on the HPSC cherax.
