Regional climate models' performance in representing precipitation and temperature over selected Mediterranean areas
(Copernicus Publications, 2013-12-12)
This paper discusses the relative performance of several climate models in providing reliable forcing for hydrological modeling in six representative catchments in the Mediterranean region. We consider 14 Regional Climate ...
An assessment of future extreme precipitation in western Norway using a linear model
(The University of Bergen, 2010-11-26)
A Linear Model (Smith and Barstad, 2004) was used to dynamically downscale Orographic Precipitation over western Norway from twelve General Circulation Model simulations. The GCM simulations come from the A1B emissions ...
Extracting statistical parameters of extreme precipitation from a NWP model
(European Geosciences Union, 2009-11-25)
Precipitation simulations on an 8×8 km grid using the PSU/NCAR Mesoscale Model MM5 are used to estimate the M5 and Ci statistical parameters in order to support the M5 map used for flood estimates by Icelandic engineers. ...
Impacts of climate change on Blue Nile flows using bias-corrected GCM scenarios
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009)
This study analyses the output of 17 general circulation models (GCMs) included in the 4th IPCC assessment report. Downscaled precipitation and potential (reference crop) evapotranspiration (PET) scenarios for the ...
