Short summary
Compared to their predecessors, the new Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP) methods for bias adjustment and statistical downscaling allow for a more robust adjustment of extreme values and spatial variability, preserve trends more accurately across quantiles, and facilitate a clearer separation of bias adjustment and statistical downscaling.
