The data in this project have been generated according to the ISIMIP2b simulation protocol.The data include  the climate-impacts simulations from models participating in the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP), as well as bias-corrected data from 4 global climate models, as provided for the CMIP5, used as input for the impact-model simulations.

Please be sure to read the ISIMIP Terms of Use before downloading and using data from this archive. Until April 2018, to use of the climate-impacts simulations for any publications, you must offer the owners of each data set co-authorship on the publication.

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 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. in the journal Geoscientific Model Development.
