Preprocessed data of Atlas in EUCP-WP2

We provide some notebooks that check the original/raw data, fix/add the metadata using CF-conventions and save data in a NetCDF format. See

The pre-processed data follows the following standards:


	climatology_bounds (climatology_bounds) datetime64[ns] ['2050-06-01', '2050-09-01', '2050-12-01', '2051-03-01']
	time (time) (datetime64[ns]) [2050-07-16 2051-01-16] # "JJA", "DJF"
	latitude (lat) (float64) [30, ..., 75]
	longitude (lon) (float64) [-10, ..., 40]
	percentile (percentile) (int64) [10, 25, 50, 75, 90]


	tas (time, latitude, longitude, percentile) (float64)
	pr (time, latitude, longitude, percentile) (float64)


The attributes of variables and coordinates are defined as:

	"tas": {
	"description": "Change in Air Temperature",
	"standard_name": "Change in Air Temperature",
	"long_name": "Change in Near-Surface Air Temperature",
	"units": "K",
	"cell_methods": "time: mean changes over 20 years 2041-2060 vs 1995-2014",
	"pr": {
	"description": "Relative precipitation",
	"standard_name": "Relative precipitation",
	"long_name": "Relative precipitation",
	"units": "%",
	"cell_methods": "time: mean changes over 20 years 2041-2060 vs 1995-2014",
	"latitude": {"units": "degrees_north", "long_name": "latitude", "axis": "Y"},
	"longitude": {"units": "degrees_east", "long_name": "longitude", "axis": "X"},

	"axis": "T",
	"climatology_bounds": ["2050-6-1", "2050-9-1", "2050-12-1", "2051-3-1"],
	"description": "mean changes over 20 years 2041-2060 vs 1995-2014. The mid point 2050 is chosen as the representative time.",
	"percentile": {"units": "%", "long_name": "percentile", "axis": "Z"},

The attributes of the data is defined as:

	"description": "Contains modified institute method data used for Atlas in EUCP project.",
	"history": "original institute method data files ...",
