Brief description

Regional Climate Model simulation dataset for the Australasian region for the years 1971-2095. Created with the CSIRO CCAM (Cubic Conformal Amostpheric Model 805) RCM (Regional Climate Model) by dynamically downscaling the GFDLSST reanalysis Climate Model output to 60 km resolution over a target area centered over Australia. 30 years of GFDLSST output was used as the host model (nested in GFDLSST), with greenhouse emissions corresponding to scenario SRESA2. Daily and Monthly Atmospheric variables are available between Lat:-60N 0N(.5 deg res) & Lon:105E 165E(.5 deg res), at 5 levels (1000, 850, 700, 500, 300 hPa), 60Km resolution(C48 grid) & 18 vertical levels. There are 539 Daily files totalling 260.0 GB, 539 Monthly_mean files totalling 5.99 GB and 539 Raw cubic conformal model output files totaling 191.0 GB with all being in netcdf format. This dataset has been created as part of a model evaluation experiment involving CCAM to examine the dynamic downscaling performance when nested in different Global climate models. Available for internal use and analysis by CSIRO staff on the HPSC cherax.
