Known Issues with CORDEX data at DKRZ

and Other Informations Relevant for Data Users

This page contains infos and warnings for users of CORDEX data sets available via ESGF

The issues in the table below are listed in reversed chronological order.

The list may be incomplete. If you note this or if you have any questions regarding the CORDEX archive please send an email to (<cordex AT dkrz DOT de>) stating the dataset(s) causing the problem.

General Notes


all EURO CORDEX

* The region EUR-11i is out of date.


AWI

  • The variables tasmax | tasmin(Near-Surface Temperature Maximum | Minimum), huss(Near-Surface Specific Humidity) , hurs(Near-Surface Relative Humidity) and sfcWindmax(Near-Surface Maximum Windspeed) had not been part of the model output during the evaluation run

  • The variables sund(Duration of Sunshine), mrfso(Soil Frozen Water Content) and snw(Surface Snow Amount) will not be provided for simulations with AWI-HIRHAM5.


CLMcom

  • The variables cl[h|m|l] ([High|Mid|Low] Level Cloud Fraction), evspsblpot (Potential Evapotranspiration), hurs (Near-Surface Relative Humidity), sic (Sea Ice Area Fraction), and tau[u|v] (Surface Downward [East|North]ward Wind Stress) will not be provided for simulations with CCLM4-8-17.

  • prsn will not be provided for simulations over AFR-XX with CCLM4-8-17.

  • prsn is not yet (ESGF version =< 20150114) available for simulations over EUR-XX with CCLM4-8-17 but will be published soon (24 Feb 2015).


GERICS / MPI-CSC

  • The variable SND (snow depth) is unpublished from all GERICS/MPI-CSC experiments, because the model output used was 'snow depth change' instead of 'snow depth'(RT#32533).
  • GERICS is the new acronym for the German Climate Service Center - the old one was MPI-CSC and is not longer permissible
  • All experiments driven by REMO2009 concerning the EUR-11 region had been

shifted by half a gridpoint in lat/lon

  • The SAM-44 domain size is 143x167, which is 3 grid points shorter in the eastern boundary compared to the suggested 146x167. This domain size was decided during the CLARIS-LPB Project before the CORDEX domains were formalized.


KNMI

  • All RACMO experiments using HadGEM2-ES as forcing input had been rerun and re-published as V2.
