Abstract

Co-Ordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) data for the South America Domain (SAM-44).

The data is produced by the MetOffice Hadley Centre regional model HadRM3P running at 0.44 degree resolution over the South America CORDEX domain (SAM-44).
HadRM3P is a regional climate model based on the HadCM3 Coupled Climate Model.
The HadRM3P model is driven by European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) ERA-Interim reanalysis data to run the CORDEX Evaluation experiment, representative of the period from 1990 to 2011.

The model outputs are interpolated to a common latitude-longitude grid. The collection includes monthly averages and seasonal means.

The CORDEX program is sponsored by the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) to organise an internationally coordinated framework to produce improved regional climate change projections for all land regions world-wide. The CORDEX-results will serve as input for climate change impact and adaptation studies.
