We performed simulations for the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment project (CORDEX) over the Middle East / North Africa domain. We used the Weather, Research and Forecasting model (WRF v3.6.1) as a climate downscaling tool. For this phase we have dynamically downscaled a bias corrected version of the CESM1 global Earth System Model (https://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds316.1/). We used a standard CORDEX-PHASE I horizontal resolution of 50 km, while on the verical the model was set on 30 levels with a top at 50 hPa. Future climate projections are under the RCP 8.5 scenario. For the moment, surface temperature data covering four decades of the recent past, present, mid-21st and end of 21st century are available. All simulations were performed in the Cy-Tera HPC facility hosted by The Cyprus Institute. More technical information can be found in the metadata file.
