Workshop

Impact Relevance and Usability of High Resolution Climate Modeling and Datasets

calendar
Aug 2nd, 2015 - Aug 7th, 2015
location
Aspen

The next generation of global climate models are soon to perform numerous simulations with a horizontal resolution on the order of a few tens of kilometers (10 to 50 km), minimizing or potentially eliminating the need for downscaled projections. In addition, higher resolution (on the order of a few km) datasets for impact analysis are available from dynamical downscaling or statistical methods. However, high-resolution simulations/datasets are not guaranteed to be synonymous with high fidelity, usability, or relevance to impact research and consideration to each of these areas is required to maximize their benefit to science and society.
