Short summary
We present a methodology to adjust the systematic errors of climate-modeled temperature with a simultaneous long-term trend preservation. The method considers the normalization of the temperature towards a reference period modeled temperature and the estimation of a residual signal, in order to apply adjustment only to the former. The skill of the methodology is compared to other methods while also assessed on the European scale.
