Seasonal climate predictions from CliPAS and DEMETER
Hindcast dataset for seasonal climate prediction which includes 14-model predictions from the Climate Prediction and its Application to Society (CliPAS) project and 7-model predictions from the Development of a European Multimodel Ensemble system for seasonal to internannual prediction (DEMETER) project.
The predictions were issued four times a year with initial condition of February 1st, May 1st, August 1st, and November 1st for the period 1981-2004.
