A high resolution convection-permitting climate change simulation was performed at 4 km grid spacing covering the entire continent of South America. The simulation was performed using Weather Research Forecasting (WRF) model. This dataset is from a 22-year simulation
representing the current climate between January 2001 and January 2022. ERA5 data was used
to initialize the model and force boundary every 3 hours. This high resolution simulation
allowed for much improved representation of topography, convection, and orographic
precipitation and snowpack, resulting in a unique dataset that can be used to study the hydroclimate processes in South America.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the https://makedatacount.org/ project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
