The input data section of this ESGF project holds the initial version of the bias-corrected GCM input data and was used to force impact models in the ISIMIP Fast Track phase. It should only be used for the ISIMIP2 catch-up experiments for sectors that were already part of the Fast Track. For all other purposes, i.e. future runs for new ISIMIP 2 sectors and modeling exercises with no relation to ISIMIP, version 2 published under the ISIMIP 2 ESGF project. This corrected and extended version (denoted as ISIe in Hempel et al. 2013) overcomes several limitations in adjusting the daily variability.

ISIMIP is a community-driven modelling effort with the goal of providing cross-sectoral global impact assessments, based on the newly developed climate Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP) and Shared Socio-Economic Pathways (SSP) scenarios.
Based on common background scenarios, a quantitative estimate of impacts and uncertainties for different sectors and from multiple impact models was derived. From this, policy relevant and society-focused metrics will be deducted.
This initiative, coordinated by a team at PIK with support from IIASA and backing from the IPCC Working Groups II+III, aims to provide outcomes for the IPCCs Fifth Assessment Report. Further it initiates a longer-term coordinated impact assessment effort driven by the entire impact community.
