A088:
Regional Climate Modeling





Session ID#: 22574

Session Description:
This session focuses on the state of the art in regional climate modeling on seasonal to centennial time scales. Contributions are solicited on coordinated experiments that focus on regional and high resolution global modeling such as CORDEX; novel approaches for model evaluation, especially process-oriented model verification; new developments such as coupled earth system modeling at regional scales and convection-permitting simulations; ensemble methods and uncertainty analyses; and assessing the added value of regional modeling. Results from use of regional models for process understanding and downscaling of IPCC climate change scenarios are also encouraged.
