6th ICTP Workshop on the Theory & Use ofREGional Climate Models

City: 
Trieste
Country: 
Italy
Dates: 
7 May 2012 - 18 May 2012
Submission deadline: 
15 Feb 2012

The main topics of the workshop include:

- Modeling and uncertainties of regional scale climate change;
- Regional coupled climate system modeling;
- New developments and applications in the ICTP regional climate model RegCM4.

This workshop will have a new focus never addressed previously - the coupling of different components of the climate system at the regional scale. It is being increasingly recognized that coupled processes across the atmosphere, ocean, biosphere and chemosphere are important not only at the global but also at the regional scale. For this reason many regional modeling systems are evolving to include coupled ocean, chemistry and biosphere as parameters. This topic is of extreme interest to the scientific community and is especially timely.
