Second project Phase of ISIMIP2
Remarks on the bias-corrected GCM input data:
This project serves the latest version of a set of CMIP5 GCM bias-corrected by ISIMIP. For all purposes related to ISIMIP2b, the version published under this ESGF project should be used.

The ISIMIP2b scenarios are designed to elicit the contribution of climate change to impacts arising from low-emissions climate-change scenarios. Pre-industrial control runs are included to facilitate statistical comparison with a no-climate-change case. The simulation protocol contains all information necessary to conduct simulations for ISIMIP2b for models covering impacts on: global biomes, regional forests, global and regional hydrology, agriculture, permafrost, energy supply & demand, coastal infrastructure, heat-related mortality, fisheries & marine ecosystems and tropical cyclones.
The scientific rationale for the scenario design has been document in the paper "Assessing the impacts of 1.5°C global warming – simulation protocol of the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP2b)" by Frieler, et al., which will appear shortly as a discussion paper in the journal Geoscientific Model Development.
