This is a question brought to us multiple times so we thought we would present it here in the forum in case anyone else is looking for an answer too.
I have a daily data series from Jan 1, 1956 to Dec 31, 2011 – 56 years of data.
I have enabled time shifting to start in 1956.
My model simulation time is Jan 1, 2020 to Jan 1, 2100. Since my simulation time is longer than my data series, I assumed that it would wrap around to the start of my data series once the data series ended.
ie. I expected that on Jan 1, 2076, the daily precip would equal that of Jan 1, 1956 from my historic time series.
However this doesn’t seem to be the case. Please see the screenshots below.
Start and end of my time series data:
Resulting ‘looped’ values. Note that the end of 2075 matches the end of my historic time series (2011). However I do not know where the 2076 data is coming from? It does not match my 1956 data.
