Session A2: Convection Permitting Modelling

Tuesday 26 September 13.30-15.00 CEST

Location: Sissa Main Auditorium

Session co-chairs: Maria Laura Bettolli and José Abraham Torres Alavez
Rapporteurs: Nátalia Machado Crespo and Luis Muñoz

Higher resolutions are needed in order to capture and understand the local scale signals and to improve provision of actionable climate data for decision making. This session includes examples of very high-resolution initiatives, including CORDEX Flagship Pilot Studies and discussions on how we establish a coordinated strategy when we move towards smaller areas with higher resolution. Key questions:  What is the added value of coordinated ensembles of convection permitting simulations? How can a common setup be defined to assure model ensembles for smaller (“national”) convection permitting resolution domains? How do we assure reliability with few simulations in some convection permitting resolution domains? What are the common scientific challenges? How do we handle large amounts of data (incl sub-daily output) and the processing of them, especially in regions with limited resources and technical challenges?
