2013 Workshop on Quantitative Evaluation of Downscaled Data

August 12-16, 2013 | NCAR Foothills Lab, Boulder, Colorado

The focus of the Workshop this summer is on the application of an objective, quantitative evaluation framework to assess the credibility of downscaled climate data developed by the National Climate Predictions and Projections (NCPP) platform and researchers from various organizations (NOAA GFDL, NCAR) and several universities. Participants in the workshop are researchers engaged in climate data downscaling, as well as practitioners from several sectoral working groups:

  • water resources,
  • ecological impacts,
  • agricultural impacts
  • human health impacts of weather and climate.

The first half of the workshop will focus on the evaluations of widely available downscaled climate datasets from a scientific perspective. The evaluation framework will be tested and fine-tuned; advantages, limitations and gaps will be illuminated. The second half of the workshop will focus on evaluations from applications perspective. The evaluations results will be discussed; interpretation and guidance for the appropriate use of downscaled climate information will be developed.
