DATASET OVERVIEW

Abstract

Future Ocean Regional Projection (FORP) datasets were produced by high-resolution regional ocean model simulations with ensemble atmospheric forcings from Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) models and scenarios. These were developed by the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) under Social Implementation Program on Climate Change Adaptation Technology (SI-CAT, grant no.: JPMXD0715667163) supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). Meteorological Research Institute Community Ocean Model version 4 (MRI.COMv4; Tsujino et al. 2017) was used for the regional ocean models.

FORP-NP10 is a historical and future ocean projection dataset in the North Pacific Ocean with an approximately 10 km horizontal resolution, produced by continuous simulation from 1981 to 2100. In the version 1 dataset (FORP-NP10 version1), the atmospheric forcings for the FORP simulations were from two climate models from CMIP5, MIROC5 and MRI-CGCM3, with historical (1981-2005), RCP2.6 (2006-2100), and RCP8.5 (2006-2100) scenarios. In addition, a historical simulation from 1981 to 2015 using a forcing of an atmospheric reanalysis, the Japanese 55-year Reanalysis (JRA-55), was included.

The dataset includes the following variables (monthly mean) in netCDF:

potential temperature (t), salinity (s), sea surface height (ssh), eastward velocity (u), northward velocity (v), surface heat and fresh water fluxes (flx), atmospheric elements for the surface forcing in the ocean model grid (atm, wind)

(NOTE: "atm" and "wind" are not included in 1981-2005)

Please the header information of each netCDF file for the details of the variables.
