ISIMIP3a: GSWP3-W5E5 counterclim and spinclim with missing data for some grid cells #17


Matthias Büchner reported on April 29, 2022.
In the ISIMIP3a counterfactual GSWP3-W5E5 climate dataset, 4 grid cells in hurs+huss and 16 cells in tasmin+tasmax are filled with missing values where they should be data. In those grid cells, the entire time series is affected. The same problem exists in GSWP3-W5E5 spinclim since that is derived from GSWP3-W5E5 counterclim.
GSWP3-W5E5 counterclim huss: The white stripe in the image center indicates the additional missing values for specific and relative humididy.
GSWP3-W5E5 counterclim tasmin: center of image shows the wrongly inserterd missing values for tasmin and tasmax

A fixed version will be provided by the end of this week.

Today, an email was sent to "isimip-data_updates" mailing list announcing the issue to a wider audience.

Fixed versions for both time series, counterclim and spinclim, were made available today with version number 20220506.


Please use the replaced datasets for new simulations or research.
