This dataset contains the emulated global multi-model urban daily temperature projections under RCP 8.5 scenario. The dataset is derived from the study "Large model structural uncertainty in global projections of urban heat waves" (XXXX). Details about this dataset and the local urban climate emulator are described in the article. This dataset documents the global urban daily temperatures of 17 CMIP5 Earth system models for 2006-2015 and 2061-2070. This dataset may be useful for multiple communities regarding urban climate change, heat waves, impacts, vulnerability, risks, and adaptation applications.
