Tender Details


There are three main objectives for this sourcing activity (project):


  1. Produce a multivariate bias corrected dataset of NARCliM1.0 and NARCliM1.5 for daily variables, for example, surface temperature (mean, minimum and maximum), precipitation, humidity, evaporation, surface pressure and surface wind speed. Note that:

    1. The variables to be bias corrected can be two or three dimensional (longitude, latitude, height) all two-dimensional over time.

    2. The daily outputted data at 10km scale is 65GB per variable for the 60 years of twelve NARCliM1.0 downscaled regional models.

    3. The daily outputted data at 10km scale is 66GB per variable for 150 years of eight NARCliM1.5 downscaled regional models.

  2. Train a small group of DPIE staff in the multi-variate bias correction method applied in this project so it can easily be applied for other variables, models or temporal frequencies as requested by users.

  3. Supply accompanying methodology, code and a technical report.
