California Climate Change Center Report Series Number 2008-0XX
Four dynamic regional climate models (RCMs) and one statistical downscaling approach were used to downscale 10 years of historical climate in California. To isolate possible limitations of the downscaling methods, we ...
Changes in Aridity in the Western United States
It is often remarked that most of the western US (Figure 1) is “always in drought,” especially by visitors from wetter climates. The plants and landforms of the West, however, are more or less adapted to the region’s ...
Projections of Potential Flood Regime Changes in California
Floods have been a recurring theme in California’s climatology, hydrology, and politics throughout its history. Today, California's aging water supply and flood protection infrastructures are challenged by major floods ...
Climate change scenarios and sea level rise estimates for California 2008 Climate Change Scenarios Assessment
For the 2008 California Climate Change Assessment, to further investigate possible future climate changes in California, a set of 12 climate change model simulations was selected and evaluated. From the Intergovernmental ...
Downscaling With Constructed Analogues: Daily Precipitation and Temperature Fields Over The United States
Daily precipitation and average temperature patterns for the contiguous United States were downscaled from a 2.5 x 2.5 degree (coarse) resolution grid to a 1/8 x 1/8 degree (fine) resolution grid using a constructed‐analogues ...
