Remarks on the bias-corrected GCM input data:
This project serves version 2. The initial version was used to force impact models in the ISIMIP Fast Track phase and should only
be used for the ISIMIP2 catch-up experiments for sectors that were already part of the Fast Track. It was published under the ISIMIP Fast Track ESGF project
. For all other purposes, i.e. future runs for new ISIMIP2a sectors and modeling exercises with no relation to ISIMIP, version 2 published under this ESGF project should be used. 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.
