Description:

This session will survey the current state of the art in regional climate modeling on seasonal to centennial time scales. Topics include new developments such as modeling earth system processes at regional scales; human influences such as land use, aerosol effects, and greenhouse gas effects; novel approaches for model verification and evaluation; process studies using regional climate models; ensemble methods and uncertainty analyses; and development of dynamical cores and physics parameterizations. Contributions also are solicited on topics such as regional downscaling of IPCC climate change scenarios, coordinated regional modeling projects (including CORDEX), and applications of regional climate projections for economic, social, or policy considerations.

Description:

Downscaling methodologies are now routinely used to translate coarse-resolution General Circulation Model output to the scales needed for climate change impact, adaptation and vulnerability studies. While the popularity of downscaling techniques is steadily increasing, a considerable debate about their added value and uncertainty sources has emerged.This session will bring together researchers from multiple disciplines to address current issues in downscaled data creation and use. Contributions on statistical, dynamical and hybrid methodologies of downscaling seasonal to multi-decadal reanalyses and projections, as well as their applications, are welcome.

Description:

The recent approval of the WMO-led GFCS, whose goal is to enable society to better manage the impacts of climate variability and change, has stimulated a number of initiatives such as CSP, JPI-climate or the ECOMS projects. In this session, developments in the technology underpinning climate services will be presented. In particular we welcome abstracts on forecasting models, at seasonal to decadal time scales, impact models and climate monitoring programmes. We also welcome papers providing examples of the two-directional translations between users and producers of climate information, especially in climate-sensitive sectors (e.g., water, energy, health, agriculture).
