Climate Change -Modeling- Session:

Regional Climate Change Simulation and its application to adaptation

Climate Change in the 21st century is one of the most important issues which our society is facing now. Then, it is proposed that an optimal mix of adaptation and mitigation techniques is critical. However, In order to achieve this goal, more accurate information on the future climate is necessary.
The future climate information is given by the global climate model simulation, which is, for example, summarized in IPCC AR4. However, as the spatial and temporal resolution in the global climate model is not sufficient for the regional scale, downscaling technique is applied to obtain the regional information. Performance of the downscaling technique is critical.
The performance of the downscaling technique depends on the performance of the global climate model which gives boundary values and that of the regional climate model. On the other hand, a regional climate model has similar property to a regional weather forecasting model. As an increase of severe weather events is simulated, capability of forecasting the severe weather events is important in a sense of the regional climate change.

 In this session, the present and future performance of the global climate model and the regional climate model is discussed. As the computer power is advanced, the present regional model will be replaced by the future global climate model. However, this does not mean that downscaling is meaningless. Role of downscaling and how to apply downscaled information to the adaptation technology is discussed. At the same time, future direction of the regional weather prediction is discussed with emphasis on the forecasting of the severe weather events.
