Canadian ensemble of CMIP5 ocean wave heights simulations (mean and extremes)
This global dataset contains monthly, seasonal and annual statistics mean and maximum of significant wave height Hs that were produced using a statistical modelling approach and the 6-hourly sea level pressure SLP fields simulated by 20 global climate models participated in the Coupled Climate Model Comparison Phase 5 CMIP5 project for the historical period 1950-2005 and for two different future emission scenarios RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 .
