abstract Daily (24 h) surface temperature over Norway for the period 2071 - 2100. The resolution is 1 km and the data have been interpolated from 55 km resolution HIRHAM simulations. The boundary conditions were from A2 emission scenario simulations by the HadCM3 Global Climate Model (GCM) at the Met Office Hadley Centre. High spatial resolution temperature (24h) projections are available for the Norwegian mainland. Results from two GCMs, HadCM3 and ECHAM5 following the SRES emission scenarios A2 and B2, and SRES emisison scenario B2 respectivly are interpolated to 1 km resolution and bias corrected. The GCMs are dynamially downscaled with the norwegian regional climate model (RCM) HIRHAM. Historical RCM runs shold be able to reproduce historical statistics as mean monthly temperature and mean monthly precipitation sums as well as mean monthly standard deviation based on daily values for temperature and precipitation respectively. This is still not the case due to too coarse resolution and physical limitations, the RCM output therefore has to be bias corrected. The bias correction method used are presented in Engen-Skaugen (2007). It's important to notice that the climate change signal obtained with HIRHAM is maintained with the method used.
