×G8. Projections of regional climate change: from modelling to applications

There are a number of regional climate projections that have been produced in Australia using dynamical and/or statistical approaches (including machine learning), as well as the international Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX).This session calls for contributions addressing a wide range of scientific issues related to preparation and applications of regional climate change projections. Presentations are sought that relate to issues such as choice of emission scenarios, ensemble generation, model evaluation and skill testing, model output calibration and bias correction, statistical and dynamical downscaling methods, investigation of specific regional climate changes, application of regional climate projections to investigate specific climate change impacts on various human and natural systems, and the use of regional climate information in adaptation and decision making applications.

Key topics: Regional climate, CORDEX, Climate projections, Climate change impacts
