The NA-CORDEX data archive contains output from regional climate models (RCMs) run over a domain covering most of North America using boundary conditions from global climate model (GCM) simulations in the CMIP5 archive. These simulations run from 1950-2100 with a spatial resolution of 0.22°/25km or 0.44°/50km. Data is available for impacts-relevant variables at daily and longer frequencies in CF-compliant netCDF format.
