2012JD018233_SText2.pdfPDF document82KText 2: evaluation of the representativeness of July for entire summer (JJA) (Table S2, Figure S2, Figure S3, Figure S4)
2012JD018233_TableS1.pdfPDF document76KMean values and error metrics for summer average, maximum, and minimum 2-meter temperatures (1979-1999) over the Eastern U.S. between NARR and the completed NARCCAP model pairings
2012JD018233_TableS2.pdfPDF document149KSummer mean values and error metrics between the NARR and WRF-CCSM and CDD experiments with WRF, for daily average, maximum, and minimum 2-meter temperatures, average 10-meter wind speed, average boundary layer height, and average daily precipitation.
2012JD018233_TableS3.pdfPDF document80KMean values and error metrics for July 2006, 2007, and 2069 average planetary boundary layer height, and between the NARR (2006 and 2007) and WRF-CCSM (2069) and downscaling experiments with WRF.
2012JD018233pS01.tiffTIFF image901KAverage 2-meter summer temperatures (Celsius) from the WRF-CCSM for the base period of 1979-1999 (a), over the period 2041-2070 (b), and projected changes from the base period to 2069, the warmest future summer for this model over the period 2041-2070 (c).
2012JD018233pS02.tifTIFF image832KSummer (JJA) daily average precipitation from 2007 (a) and differences between the NARR parent data and experiments with CDD (b); from 2069 (c), and differences between the parent WRF-CCSM data and experiments with CDD (d). Daily average precipitation values and departures from parent data are in millimeters per day. White dots indicate where grid points were excluded from analysis for having less land than water (lakes).
2012JD018233pS03.tifTIFF image770KSummer (JJA) average 2-meter temperatures from 2007 (a) and differences between the NARR parent data and experiments with CDD (b); from 2069 (c) and differences between parent WRF-CCSM data and experiments with CDD (d). All temperatures are in degrees Celsius. White dots indicate where grid points were excluded from analysis for having less land than water (lakes).
2012JD018233pS04.tifTIFF image1031KJuly average 2-meter temperatures from 2007 (a) and differences between the NARR parent data with experiments with CDD (b), without (c), CDD above PBL (d), and CDD only wind (e) ; from 2069 (f) and differences between parent WRF-CCSM data and experiments with CDD (g), without (h), when CDD is applied only above the boundary layer (i), and when CDD is only applied to winds (j). All temperatures are in degrees Celsius. White dots indicate where grid points were excluded from analysis for having less land than water (lakes).
2012JD018233pS05.tifTIFF image1104KJuly average 10-meter wind speeds from 2007 (a) and differences between the NARR parent data with experiments with CDD (b), without (c), CDD above PBL (d), and CDD only wind (e) ; from 2069 (f) and differences between parent WRF-CCSM data and experiments with CDD (g), without (h), CDD above PBL (i), and CDD only wind (j). All wind speeds are in meters per second. White dots indicate where grid points were excluded from analysis for having less land than water (lakes).
