Downscaled Climate Model Output for the Contiguous United States from IPCC AR4 Scenarios [Bias Corrected Statistical Downscaling (BCSD) Method]


Publication Date

End Date


This data series contains 2868 temporal datasets.These data are climate model outputs that have been downscaled to 4-km spatial resolution using the Bias Corrected Statistical Downscaling (BCSD) method. Moore and Walden have modified the BCSD method described by Wood et al (2002), Long-range experimental hydrologic forecasting for the eastern United States. Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres 107: 4429-4443 and Salathe (2005), Downscaling simulations of future global climate with application to hydrologic modeling. International Journal of Climatology 25: 419-436. The modifications include a different interpolation scheme between GCM grid cells and a different approach to dealing with extreme values (Z-scores versus CDF method). [...]
