AS26 – Regional Climate Downscaling: Progress, Challenges and Applications

Abstract submission deadline: February 18, 2016

AS26 – Regional Climate Downscaling: Progress, Challenges and Applications Research on the dynamical downscaling using regional climate models has made considerable progress in the recent years. A number of techniques are being developed to make the downscaled products useful to the society. However, still there are many challenges in improving the downscaled results mainly due to the limitations of the physical parameterization schemes used in the models.

The aim of the session is to review the overall progress and challenges in development and application of regional climate models. In this regard, this session invites diverse research results associated with regional climate model from the improvement of the model physics and dynamics to interdisciplinary applications of downscaled climate data. We are also interested in the topics addressing the added values of regional climate model and its applications to the society. The results of the ensemble simulations from the international Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) are also welcome.


Conveners: Dr. Satyaban B. Ratna (JAMSTEC, Japan), Prof. Fredolin T. Tangang (University of Malaysia), Dr. Eun-Soon Im (SMART, Singapore), Prof. Sushil K. Dash (IIT, Delhi, India), Dr. J. Venkata Ratnam (JAMSTEC, Japan)

January 13, 2016: Abstract deadline for Regional climate modeling at EGU General Assembly 2016

 EGU General Assembly in Vienna, 17-22 April 2016. 

We encourage you to submit your work to session CL5.09, “Regional climate modeling, including CORDEX.”   In past years this been the top session within the EGU climate section in terms of number of abstracts. We expect to continue in this tradition given the surge in activity for CORDEX and other RCM projects.

The session description is at http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2016/session/20078.

Abstract deadline: 13 January 2016 at 13:00 Central European Time (12:00 UTC).


ICRC-CORDEX 2016: Registration is open

17th-20th May 2016, Stockholm – Sweden

The International Conference on Regional Climate (ICRC)-CORDEX 2016 will bring together the international community involved in regional climate research focusing on high resolution climate information, and its applications to the vulnerability, impacts and adaptation community and the full spectrum of potential end users of regional climate information. It will further promote the CORDEX vision to advance and coordinate the science and application of regional climate downscaling through global partnerships.

  • Early bird registration rate until 17th March 2016, to register click here

Advanced School on Climate Modeling over South America

15-19 February 2016, IFT – Unesp, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

As in previous workshops, this event will include lectures and extensive hands-on sessions on the theory of regional climate dynamics and regional climate change while providing a background on regional climate modeling studies focused on the South America region.

The deadline for application is November 30, 2015.
