The CSIRO archive of the the Fitzroy Basin Regional Climate Model dataset for for the years 1961-2100. Created with the CSIRO Cubic Conformal Atmospheric Model (CCAM) Regional Climate Model (RCM) by dynamically downscaling the CSIRO Mk3.0 Global Climate Model output over a target area centered on the Fitzroy Basin region (south eastern Queensland). The CCAM model was nested in the CSIRO Mk3.0 Global Climate Model (GCM) host for the A2 scenario with the M20th scenario as greenhouse emissions corresponding to 1961-2000. 2X-Daily and Monthly mean atmospheric variables are available between Lat: -15, -35 & Lon: 130, 170 at 5 levels (1000, 850, 700, 500, 300 hPa) with .1º (14km) resolution. There are 1178 daily files totaling 3.53 TB, and 2379 monthly_mean files totaling 131 GB. All files are in netcdf format and are available for internal use and analysis by CSIRO staff on the HPSC cherax.
