Grid-to-Grid model estimates of monthly mean flow and soil moisture for Great Britain: weather@home2 (climate model) driving data [MaRIUS-G2G-WAH2-monthly]

This dataset is a model output, from the Grid-to-Grid hydrological model driven by weather@home2 climate model data. It provides a 100-member ensemble of monthly mean flow (m3/s) and soil moisture (mm water/m soil) on a 1 km grid for the following time periods: historical baseline (HISTBS: 1900-2006), near-future (NF: 2020-2049) and far-future (FF: 2070-2099). It also includes a baseline period (BS: 1975-2004).

To aid interpretation, two additional spatial datasets are provided:
• Digitally-derived catchment areas on a 1km x 1km grid
• Estimated locations of flow gauging stations on a 1km x 1km grid and as a csv file.

The data were produced as part of MaRIUS (Managing the Risks, Impacts and Uncertainties of drought and water Scarcity), which was a UK NERC-funded research project (2014–2017) that developed a risk-based approach to drought and water scarcity.

Quality

Lineage
The flow and soil moisture estimates are output from the Grid-to-Grid hydrological model (Bell et al. 2009; https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2009.08.031). The meteorological inputs to the model were the weather@home2 bias-corrected precipitation and potential evaporation (Guillod et al. 2018; http://dx.doi.org/10.5285/0cea8d7aca57427fae92241348ae9b03).
