Town Hall Meeting: Developing Climate Scenarios for the 4th National Climate Assessment and the Sustained Assessment Process

Scientific Program: Conferences and Symposia
View by day and at-a-glance, includes author index and personal scheduler

Tuesday, 6 January 2015, 12:15–1:15 p.m.; Room 124A

Scenarios of future physical climate conditions provide the necessary unifying foundation for internally consistent consideration of impacts and for modeling of impacts performed specifically for the climate assessment process.  The development of scenarios for the Fourth U.S. National Climate Assessment and the Sustained Assessment process is already beginning and this Town Hall is intended to provide a mechanism for gathering input from the climate community on the scenarios process.  Issues to be addressed include, but are not limited to, the use of CMIP3 vs. CMIP5 model simulations, statistical and dynamical downscaling, higher temporal resolution (e.g. sub-daily) scenarios, and integration with other types of scenarios such as land-use or population change.
