First bias-adjusted CORDEX data now freely available

Dear CORDEX users,

We are pleased to announce that a subset of the Euro-CORDEX simulations (EUR-11 and EUR-44), bias-adjusted by a few different methods, are now openly available on ESGF under the CORDEX-Adjust project. Currently the bias-adjusted daily data for mean/max/min temperature and precipitation is available. All ESGF CORDEX users can access the data and the general CORDEX Terms of Use (unrestricted or non-commercial) apply for the bias-adjusted CORDEX RCM data.

This subset of bias-adjusted Euro-CORDEX simulations is a first step. At moment not all Euro-CORDEX simulations are bias-adjusted but work on expanding and filling the bias-adjusted Euro-CORDEX matrix is ongoing. It is also expected that bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations for other CORDEX domains will be made available in the coming months.

Information on bias-adjusted methods and on how to access the bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations can be found on the CORDEX website: “Data access” -> “Bias-adjusted RCM data”

For all groups interested to submit CORDEX simulations bias-adjusted by their bias-adjustment methods there are step-by-step instructions in “Experiment Guidelines” -> “How to submit bias-adjusted RCM data” on the CORDEX website:
