Session 2. Regional climate modeling in the North Pacific

Enrique Curchitser (USA)
Chan Joo Jang (Korea)

Plelnary Speaker:
Michael Foreman (Institute of Ocean Sciences, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Canada)

Invited Speakers:
Arthur J. Miller (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD, USA)
Takashi Mochizuki (JAMSTEC, Japan)

Regional climate models (RCMs) are vital tools for understanding changes in regional climate. They serve as a good starting point for many socio-economic impact and adaptation considerations to climate changes. Despite their limitations, including systematic errors in forcing fields supplied by global climate models, RCMs are the most promising means of providing information on regional climate changes, mainly through their ability to accommodate much higher spatial resolution. This session invites papers addressing RCM efforts including downscaling techniques, assessment of added values of RCMs in comparison with global climate models, identification and evaluation of regional climate changes in the North Pacific Ocean simulated from global climate models, assessment of RCM uncertainty, and coupling of RCMs to ecosystem models. The goal of the session is to assemble and access existing regional climate modeling efforts, providing a platform to discuss limitation and reliability of RCMs.
