Information on CORDEX CMIP6 simulation plans and status is available!!

Dear CORDEX community!

Now the information on CORDEX CMIP6 simulation status is available!!

You can see the regional simulations/downscalings of CMIP that are planned for your domain here 

The simulations status is listed as;
• Full list of simulations
• Summary by domain
• Summary by scenario
• Summary by experiment

Thanks to all who has contributed! This simulation status platform will be a living site and evolve as simulations are completed, status changed or new simulation plans are added. To keep this alive we need your help!! Please, give your input here if you want to contribute by adding or updating your simulations.

 

This page also includes information on the CORDEX CMIP5 simulations available from ESGF, thus providing a live version of the inventory of simulations provided here.

The Empirical Statistical Downscaling White Paper, ESD White Paper, is now published!

The Empirical Statistical Downscaling White Paper, ESD White Paper, is now published! This version of the ESD White Paper focuses on empirical statistical downscaling strategies and identify specific challenges within ESD.

Last year the CORDEX Science Advisory Team (SAT) published the first CORDEX White Paper which primarily focuses on dynamical downscaling and its scientific challenges.

These two White papers will be followed by a third on bridging climate science with society needs. Those papers will form the basis for the CORDEX Science Plan.

CORDEX-CMIP6 Atmosphere Variable List

The Second Order Draft (SOD) of the CORDEX-CMIP6 Atmosphere Variable List (VL) was shared with the CORDEX community in January 2022. We are very grateful to all who have read the SOD in detail and provided comments. The final version of the CORDEX-CMIP6 Atmosphere Variable List is ready and we share it with the CORDEX community.

All together we received about 40 comments on the SOD and the first priority has been given to topics with a number of similar comments. We tried to find a balance between requests for providing more variables at higher subdaily frequencies and requests for reducing output size by archiving a number of variables at lower subdaily frequencies. The CORDEX-CMIP6 Atmosphere Variable List has a lot of flexibility to select output variables and their output frequencies to accommodate capacities of different RCM groups.

A tutorial to the CORDEX-CMIP6 Data Request describing how to select output variables and their output intervals and how to archive a number of specific variables is also provided.

To the web page Data request.

Experiment protocol RCMs is published!

The CORDEX experiment design for dynamical downscaling of CMIP6 is now published!

The Second Order Draft (SOD) of the CORDEX experiment design (protocol hereafter) for dynamical downscaling of CMIP6 was shared with the CORDEX community in February 2021. We are very grateful to all who have read the SOD in detail and provided comments. The final version of the new CORDEX-CMIP6 protocol is ready and hereby we share it with the CORDEX community. In order to keep the process of developing the CORDEX protocol transparent and open for the community, here, the CORDEX Science Advisory Team (SAT) provides response to the comments on the SOD and how they have been addressed in the final version.

Please find the CORDEX-CMIP6 protocol here and the CORDEX SAT responses to the SOD comments here.

Future Scientific Challenges for CORDEX; the White Paper

The Future Scientific Challenges for CORDEX, the White Paper, is now published!

The CORDEX Science Advisory Team (SAT) has developed a White Paper with the purpose to point out scientific challenges in regional climat modelling for bettter informed decision making process in regions and setting the basis for the CORDEX science plan.

The White Paper has also been published as a CORDEX newsletter. If you want to subscribe to our newsletters, please go here.
