Suggestions

  • ECPC will prepare a frozen version of RSM for CORDEX. It is recommended all groups use the same version.
  • ECPC will preprocess ERA-interim data for input into RSM-CORDEX, make the available on ECPC server (each group still has to sign a form for data use, I think)
  • Hideki will define all 12 domains so they conform to CORDEX instructions
  • All groups run at 50km resolution
  • Let us do ERA-interim (20 years) and see how it goes.
  • The next goal is to do historical run (55 years) and RCP4.5 or RCP8.5 (95 years) for one GCM run

RSM/ECPC frozen version for CORDEX (RSM-CORDEX)

  • SSBC?
  • Cloud?
  • Convection?
