This dataset contains daily discharge simulations for the River Blue Nile at gauge El Diem in Ethiopia, close to the border to Sudan. The simulations have been performed by the Soil and Water Integrated Model (SWIM) developed at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. The hydrological model was forced by 5 climate model ensembles (uncorrected and bias-corrected GCMs [5 models] and RCMs [10 models] ensembles and one selected model ensemble [10 models]) under RCP4.5 and RCP8.5. The discharge simulations were produced to investigate projection uncertainties from climate model forcing and to assess the effects of two different bias-correction methods and their impacts on hydrological simulations.
