Short Name:

High Mountain Asia GFDL FLOR Modeled Extreme Precipitation Indices V001

This data set features seven standard annual mean extreme precipitation indices: Rx1day, Rx5day, CWD, R10mm, R20mm, R95pTOT, and R99pTOT. They were selected on the basis of potential relevance to landslide activity from the 27 indices established by the joint CCl/CLIVAR/JCOMM Expert Team (ET) on Climate Change Detection and Indices (ETCCDI). The seven indices were simulated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) Forecast-oriented Low Ocean Resolution version of CM2.5 (GFDL FLOR).
