09 Australasia

CORDEX Australasia

Model domain



For Australasia, the simulations are performed on a rotated grid with the pole at 180°W longitude and 90°N latitude. The domain covers approximately the region from about 29°W to 65°E longitude and 50°S to 47°N latitude. The simulation were carried out with a grid spacing of 0.44° (approx. 50 km). For more information visit the wiki-page on CORDEX-Australasia.

Runs at 0.44° (approx. 50 km) 

An evaluation run was performed at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht using ERA-Interim data (Dee et al., 2011) as boundary forcing for the time period 1979 - 2010. To establish an ensemble of climate projections different forcing GCMs and scenarios listed in the table below were employed.
