Abstract. This study presents a novel bias correction scheme for Regional Climate Model (RCM) precipitation ensembles. A primary advantage of using model ensembles for climate change impact studies is that the uncertainties associated with the systematic error can be quantified through the ensemble spread. Currently, however, most of the conventional bias correction methods adjust all the ensemble members to one reference observation. As a result, the ensemble spread is degraded during bias correction. Since the observation is only one case of many possible realizations due to the climate natural variability, bias correction scheme should preserve ensemble spread within the bounds of natural variability (i.e. sampling uncertainty). To demonstrate the proposed methodology, an application to the Thorverton catchment in the southwest of England is presented. For the ensemble, 11-members from the Hadley Centre Regional Climate Model (HadRM3-PPE) Data are used and monthly bias correction has been done for the baseline time period from 1961 to 1990. In the typical conventional method, monthly mean precipitation of each of the ensemble members are nearly identical to the observation, i.e. the ensemble spread is removed. In contrast, the proposed method corrects the biases while maintain ensemble spread within the natural variability of observations.
