This data set is produced as a part of the ''Improving the quantification of climate change hazards by hydrological models: A simple approach for mimicking the impact of active vegetation on potential evapotranspiration" journal publication (in preparation). WaterGAP2.2d global hydrological model with two different settings; 1) without active vegetation (PT) and 2) with active vegetation mimicking method (PT-MA) (please refer to the publication for more details on the method) used to derive the data set. The bias-adjusted GCM-derived (GFDL-ESM2M, HadGEM2-ES, IPSL-CM5A-LR, and MIROC5) climate data under RCP2.6 and RCP8.5 emission scenarios were used as the input. The model-derived potential evapotranspiration and the renewable water resources variables are available from 1981 to 2099 on the monthly scale for each land grid cell (spatial resolution: 0.5 degrees x 0.5 degrees). The data files are in the netCDF format (.nc4).
