EURO-CORDEX GA 2017
Tuesday, 31.1.2017 14:00 until Thursday, 2.2.2017 16:00
More on Euro-CORDEX on http://euro-cordex.net/
There will be a LUCAS-FPS meeting on Monday 30.1.2017, for further information contact Diana Rechid.
First bias-adjusted CORDEX data now freely available
Dear CORDEX users,
This subset of bias-adjusted Euro-CORDEX simulations is a first step. At moment not all Euro-CORDEX simulations are bias-adjusted but work on expanding and filling the bias-adjusted Euro-CORDEX matrix is ongoing. It is also expected that bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations for other CORDEX domains will be made available in the coming months.
Information on bias-adjusted methods and on how to access the bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations can be found on the CORDEX website: “Data access” -> “Bias-adjusted RCM data”
For all groups interested to submit CORDEX simulations bias-adjusted by their bias-adjustment methods there are step-by-step instructions in “Experiment Guidelines” -> “How to submit bias-adjusted RCM data” on the CORDEX website:
We want to thank all projects and individual institutions contributing to the first release of bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations, in particular:
CLIPC – Climate Information Platform for Copernicus (FP7 EU project)
IS-ENES2 – Infrastructure for the European Network of Earth System Modelling Phase 2 (FP7 EU project)
ESGF – Earth System Grid Federation
CLIM4ENERGY – a proof-of-concept climate service for the energy sector (the Copernicus Climate Change Services)
CRESCENDO – Coordinated Research in Earth Systems and Climate: Experiments, kNowledge, Dissemination and Outreach (H2020 EU project)

We encourage you to present your research in the session “Regional Climate Modeling” to be held at the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). In past years this session has had a strong turnout, making it an excellent opportunity to learn about new developments in regional climate modeling and to showcase your own work. The session will include an update on CORDEX status and plans by CORDEX co-chair Dr. William Gutowski.
The AGU meeting will be held 12-16 December 2016 in San Francisco, California, USA. The web page for the session is https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm16/preliminaryview.cgi/Session13074 and the session description appears at the end of this email.
The abstract deadline is Wednesday, 3 August 2016 at 23:59 U.S. Eastern Daylight Time (corresponding UTC is 4 August at 03:59). Please be aware that AGU is very strict about deadlines and they will not accept late abstracts under ANY circumstances! We recommend that you submit your abstract at least a day ahead of time since the AGU system sometimes becomes overloaded on the deadline date.
We would like to draw your attention to a Special Session that will be held at the upcoming UGM (http://www.ugm.org.mx/raugm/) meeting in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, 30 October – 4 November 2016:
In the last decade the study of the causes and effects of climate change, almost always supported by the integration of numerical models, has gained a social significance rarely seen in the history of modern science. Regional climate models have become a powerful tool to investigate the physical and dynamical processes of the atmosphere that regulate weather and climate. In recent years, the rapid growth of computational power has increased the potential and scope of such models, applied not only to the calculation of climate projections, but also to the generation of information for decision-makers.
This session will explore topics such as:
Deadline to submit abstracts: 07 August
The ocean plays a fundamental role in the global climate system, as it contributes largely to climate regulation by absorbing more than 25% of the carbon dioxide humans produce annually. It must therefore be considered as an essential part of mitigating climate change and solving climatic issues. Also, climate change deeply affects the marine environment, and preventing further climate change is important in order to maintain a healthy ocean. The mutual interaction between ocean and climate remains a key aspect of environmental science in order to tackle ecological problems. (read more)
