Climate projection data

1. Climate projection data: d4PDF/d2PDF tropical cyclone track

We provide tropical cyclone track data of database for Policy Decision making for Future climate change (d4PDF). The data contains locations, intensities and radii of TC. It may useful to extract extreme events of d4PDF.

Data description

Methodology

The extraction of TC tracks of d4PDF is based on Shimura et al. (2016). Please check reference.

2. Climate projection data: d4PDF extra-tropical cyclone track

We provide extra-tropical cyclone track data of database for Policy Decision making for Future climate change (d4PDF). The data contains locations, intensities ETC. It may useful to extract extreme events of d4PDF.

Data description

Methodology

The extraction of ETC tracks of d4PDF is based on Mori et al. (2017). Please check reference. Please cite reference Ninomiya et al. (2021), if you use this dataset for publishing papers and others.

3. Wave climate projection data

Global long-term wave climate projection was carried out based on the future climate prediction by MRI-AGCM of JMA Meteorological Research Institute. The global wave climate projections with high-resolution nesting computations for the Japanese coastal area were performed.

Data description

Methodology

The spectral wave model WAVEWATCH III (version 4.16) was driven by the MRI-AGCM of the Japan Meteorological Research Institute (MRI), using wind speed and sea ice concentration as external forces, to calculate wave climate since 1979. We used a three-step nesting method to calculate the global (resolution of about 60 km) – northwestern Pacific (17 km) – area around Japan (7 km). (Reference 1 aand 2)
