Modelled vegetation carbon, temperature and rainfall for Great Britain 1997-2099 under four climate and CO2 scenarios

This dataset contains modelled vegetation carbon output from the land surface model JULES, along with the temperature and rainfall outputs (which were originally inputted) at a monthly, 1.5km resolution. There are four different JULES simulations, using two different climate projections (global climate sensitivity of 3.5K and highest global climate sensitivity of 7.1K) under a constant, present day atmospheric CO2 and a CO2 pathway that follows the SRES (Special Report on Emissions Scenarios) A1B scenario.

Provenance & quality

JULES is a community developed land surface model, led by the UK Met Office and Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and is available for use after registering on the JULES repository (https://code.metoffice.gov.uk/trac/jules). The data produced using JULES was model version vn4.9 and the model configuration can be found on the Rose suite u-ao645 under the branch ‘transient_25km_drive’, available from https://code.metoffice.gov.uk/trac/roses-u (registration required).
