Register for the EGU-session “Regional climate modeling, including CORDEX” (session CL5.06 )

Dear Colleagues,

This is a final reminder that the abstract submission deadline for the upcoming EGU General Assembly is very close, on 10 January

2018 at 13:00 Central Europe Time (12:00 UTC).

We encourage you to submit your research for presentation in the session “Regional climate modeling, including CORDEX” (session CL5.06 ), so that this session can continue to be a strong contribution to the EGU climate program. The session description (with a link to the abstract submission page) is at

We look forward to meeting you in Vienna.

Filippo Giorgi (along with Ray Arritt and Ivan Guettler, co-conveners)

CORDEX GCM-RCM simulations overview

Now an excel file with information on simulations in all CORDEX domains is available.

The file is an overview of model simulations in the domains and does not include all details.

Since new simulations are performed continuously the most recent information on simulations/model runs with more details will be available via links or  contacts referred to at the domain tabs in the excel document.

For access to the excel file go to GCM-RCM excel overview.

For a quick overview of number of simulations for each domain go to GCM-RCM summary table.

CORDEX African Impact Atlas

Researchers in the CORDEX-Africa project have started an initiative to co-develop knowledge on climate change impacts in Africa. Co-ordinated at the University of Cape Town with support from the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) and the Climate Service Centre in Germany, the plan is to develop a climate atlas showing the regional effects of various climate scenarios as a support for important functions in society.
The atlas would present a systematic regional analysis on the effects of 1.5, 2 and 4 degrees of global warming based on local needs in order to provide support for the many communities that do not currently have any detailed information about climate developments. A plan for the atlas was presented at the Earth Info Day at COP 22 in Marrakech in early November and project launch could be as early as 2017, if funding can be secured. For more information see the SMHI News item.
