WASCAL WRF12km with ERA-INT forcing as control experiment

DOI

This experiment uses the data from the WRF60_eraint_ctrl experiment as forcing data for downscaling to 12km resolution by the regional model, WRFV3.5.1 for the region of West Africa. The 'control'-run is a reanalysis of observed data similar to an experiment of the CMIP5 - Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (http://cmip-pcmdi.llnl.gov/cmip5/). This experiment is divided into several time slices of 11 years. The first year of each time slice is used as a spin-up phase and should not be used in the analysis. The 12 km resolution of this experiment is the second step of the two step downscaling WRF experiment.
