We are interested in downscaling to finer resolution actual information you provided at 0.5 ° cell size in the demonstrator, however requirements are different for the two case studies.
For case study that uses indicators such as the change in Flow duration curves percentiles, we think we can use them as they are provided now. We don’t need to downscale a model time series of discharge (Ronald showed in his example it could be tricky indeed), we are fine with percentiles variations that represent average upstream catchment behavior. Provided resolution, even if a ittle too coarse, is still usable as one ore more cells may fit inside a catchment, so using the average values from involved cells should work.
For case study that uses indicators such as precipitation and temperature we need finer resolution (roughly 2X2 km2) time series of 10 days values in C. C. If we got your suggestion right we could do this taking the local time series for every station and trying to modify them using the modelled indicators.
In the case of mentioned 10 days P-T variables , for example we cuold use the 10 days modelled time series of “changes in the variable” and just apply it to every local stations data belonging tho that cell.
