Abstract

Regional Ocean Modeling System outputs from dynamic downscaling of Coupled Model Intercomparison Project climate forcings in the California Current system, including projections with full climate forcings, as well as attribution experiments with only changes in wind, heat fluxes and other properties changing stratification, and boundary biogeochemical forcings. Output variables include euphotic zone integrated net primary productivity, and incident photosytnehtically available radiation, and ocean temperature, salinity, vertical velocity, and dissolved oxygen and nitrate concentrations at select depths.

Methods

Configuration and methods are described in detail in the associated manuscript in Global Biogeochemical Cycles, as well as in https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.02.10.942730 and https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.02.10.942565. Projections of ~2100 ocean conditions are generated by applying global earth system model outputs to regional model boundary forcings, which are dynamically downscaled through the regional ocean model. Presented variables are interpolated to select depth horizons form the bathymetry-following following model grid.
