This dataset contains the emulated global multi-model urban climate projections under RCP 8.5 and RCP 4.5 used in the article "Global multi-model projections of local urban climates" ( Details about this dataset and the local urban climate emulator are described in the article. This dataset documents the monthly mean projections of urban temperatures and urban relative humidity of 26 CMIP5 Earth system models (ESMs) from 2006 to 2100 across the globe. This dataset may be useful for multiple communities regarding urban climate change, impacts, vulnerability, risks, and adaptation applications.
