oWLK-GCM objective weather types derived from General Circulation Models (Reanalysis data and Global Climate Model Simulations)

Abstract:
Objective weather types of Deutscher Wetterdienst derived from different Reanalysis and Global Climate Model simulations for the control run (1951-2000) and the projection period (2000-2100). Forthermore, the NAO-index is also provided. On the one hand, the dataset is useful for evaluation of representative circulation statistics in Central Europe, on the other hand, for the analysis of future weather types due to climate change. Added temperature and precipitation data allow to study the weather type effectiveness for these important climate parameters.

  • processStep:
    • This metadata record was created automatically as a representation of the bulletin declaration found in WMO # 9 Volume C1. Other references were used in the process, including WMO References such as WMO # 9 Volume A, WMO # 386 Manual on the GTS and WMO # 306 Manual on Codes. Other elements of information were also collected or created for the purpose of the GTS Metadata Generation. This work, as well as the creation of the representation of the WMO references was done by Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) on a "best effort" basis.
