This is the archive relating to the ISIMIP2a simulation round of the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP) according to the ISIMIP2b simulation protocol. The scientific rationale for the scenario design has been document in the paper "Assessing the impacts of 1.5°C global warming..." by Frieler, et al. in Geoscientific Model Development.
The ISIMIP2b simulation 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 covers: global biomes, regional forests, global and regional hydrology, agriculture, permafrost, energy supply & demand, coastal infrastructure, heat-related mortality, fisheries & marine ecosystems and tropical cyclones.
