Climate change prediction with new generation models: moderate and high resolution studies
MetadataShow full item record
The main purpose of this research is to use the Parallel Climate Model (PCM) and the Community Climate System Model version 2 (CCSM2) for studies of anthropogenically forced climate change simulations with higher resolution and more detailed model components. Because it is difficult to separate anthropogencic climate change from natural climate variability, it is necessary to carry out ensembles of simulations in order to find the statistically significant climate change signal.
