A new version of the IITM-RegCM4 RCP4.5 outputs for the period 2006-2060

A new version of the IITM-RegCM4 RCP4.5 outputs for the period 2006-2060 is generated after removing the data gaps
reported by many users.

This monthly and daily datasets are available for download from CCCR-IITM ftp server:

CORDEX Southeast Asia science and training workshop

17-20 November 2014 - Citeko Bogor (Indonesia)


The 1st WCRP CORDEX science and training workshop in Southeast Asia will be held during 17-21 November 2014 in BMKG Training Center, Citeko Bogor, Indonesia, jointly supported and organized by the Indonesian Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG), WCRP, APN (Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research), MAIRS (Monsoon Asia Integrated Regional Study), Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP), Chinese Academy of Sciences and the National University of Malaysia (UKM). The training workshop is aimed at young scientists who conduct research in regional climate downscaling and climate change impact assessment. Scientific papers on various topics listed below are solicated from scientists within and outside the region.

International Project Office for CORDEX (IPOC) hosted at SMHI


After an independent evaluation, WCRP are pleased to announce that the Swedish Meteorological & Hydrological Institute (SMHI) has been selected as the host of the new International Project Office for CORDEX (IPOC). The office is expected to be up and running by late 2014 (read more...)

AGU Fall Meeting: Session 2325 on Regional Climate Modeling

AGU Fall Meeting

15-19 December 2014 - San Francisco (USA)

Session 2325 : Regional Climate Modeling


This session focuses on the state of the art in regional climate modeling on seasonal to centennial time scales. Contributions are solicited on coordinated numerical 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; ensemble methods and uncertainty analyses; development of dynamical cores and physics parameterizations; and human influences such as land use, aerosols, and greenhouse gases. Results from regional downscaling of IPCC climate change scenarios and applications of regional climate projections for economic, social, or policy considerations are also encouraged.


Deadline for abstract submissions: 6 August 2014
