Abstract:
Long term simulations using convection-permitting regional climate models are a great tool to analyze hydrometeorological phenomena. These models are especially useful in remote environments with sparse observations, and to assess potential changes under future scenarios. Improving these simulations at convective resolving scales require a careful assessment for robust characterizations of climate change impacts at regional scales. Even more, their validation is essential to understand strengths and weaknesses on representing atmospheric and land-surface processes. In this webinar, an introduction will be given about the benefits of convection-permitting modeling and their verification for a variety of hydrometeorological variables. Then, examples will be shown about mesoscale atmospheric processes, its impacts on the snowpack and related changes in a warmer climate. Finally, some ongoing efforts to produce long-term regional climate simulations over South America will be presented.
