  • Assimilation of MODIS Dark Target and Deep Blue observations in the dust aerosol component of NMMB-MONARCH version 1.0 

    di Tomaso, Enza; Schutgens, Nick A. J.; Jorba, Oriol; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2017-03-10)
    Article
    Accés obert
    A data assimilation capability has been built for the NMMB-MONARCH chemical weather prediction system, with a focus on mineral dust, a prominent type of aerosol. An ensemble-based Kalman filter technique (namely the local ...
  • On the key role of droughts in the dynamics of summer fires in Mediterranean Europe 

    Turco, Marco; Hardenberg, Jost von; AghaKouchak, Amir; Llasat, Maria C.; Provenzale, Antonello; Trigo, Ricardo M. (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-03-06)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Summer fires frequently rage across Mediterranean Europe, often intensified by high temperatures and droughts. According to the state-of-the-art regional fire risk projections, in forthcoming decades climate effects are ...
  • Analysis of Atlantic Tropical Cyclone Landfall Forecasts in Coupled GCMs on Seasonal and Decadal Timescales 

    Camp, Joanne; Caron, Louis-Philippe (Springer International Publishing, 2017-02-21)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In this chapter we present advances in forecasting Atlantic tropical cyclone (TC) landfall statistics at both seasonal and multi-annual timescales using coupled global climate models. First, we demonstrate potential for ...
  • Description and evaluation of the Multiscale Online Nonhydrostatic AtmospheRe CHemistry model (NMMB-MONARCH) version 1.0: gas-phase chemistry at global scale 

    Badia, Alba; Jorba, Oriol; Voulgarakis, Apostolos; Dabdub, Donald; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos; Hilboll, Andreas; Gonçalves Ageitos, María; Zavisa, Janjic (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2017-02-10)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper presents a comprehensive description and benchmark evaluation of the tropospheric gas-phase chemistry component of the Multiscale Online Nonhydrostatic AtmospheRe CHemistry model (NMMB-MONARCH), formerly known ...
  • Impact of explosive volcanic eruptions on the main climate variability modes 

    Swingedouw, Didier; Mignot, Juliette; Ortega, Pablo; Khodri, Myriam; Menegoz, Martin; Cassou, Christophe; Hanzquiez, Vincent (Elsevier, 2017-03)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Volcanic eruptions eject largeamounts of materials into the atmosphere, which can have an impact on climate. In particular, the sulphur dioxide gas released in the stratosphere leads to aerosol formation that reflects part ...
  • Benefits of Increasing the Model Resolution for the Seasonal Forecast Quality in EC-Earth 

    Prodhomme, Chloé; Batté, L.; Massonnet, François; Davini, P.; Bellprat, Omar; Guemas, Virginie; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J. (American Meteorological Society, 2016-12-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Resolution in climate models is thought to be an important factor for advancing seasonal prediction capability. To test this hypothesis, seasonal ensemble reforecasts are conducted over 1993–2009 with the European community ...
  • High-resolution dust modelling over complex terrains in West Asia 

    Basart, Sara; Vendrell, Lluis; Baldasano, Jose M. (Elsevier, 2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The present work demonstrates the impact of model resolution in dust propagation in a complex terrain region such as West Asia. For this purpose, two simulations using the NMMB/BSC-Dust model are performed and analysed, ...
  • Record low northern hemisphere sea ice extent in March 2015 

    Fuckar, Neven S.; Massonnet, François; Guemas, Virginie; Garcia-Serrano, Javier; Omar, Bellprat; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J.; Mario, Acosta (American Meteorological Society, 2016-12-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The record low Northern Hemisphere (NH) winter sea ice maximum stemmed from a strong interannual surface anomaly in the Pacific sector, but it would not have been reached without long-term climate change.
  • The Role of Arctic Sea Ice and Sea Surface Temperatures on the Cold 2015 February Over North America 

    Bellprat, Omar; Massonnet, François; Garcia-Serrano, Javier; Fuckar, Neven S.; Guemas, Virginie; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J. (American Meteorological Society, 2016-12-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The cold spell of February 2015 in North America was predominantly internally generated; reduced Arctic sea ice and anomalous sea surface temperatures may have contributed in establishing and sustaining the anomalous flow.
  • High Resolution Model Intercomparison Project (HighResMIP v1.0) for CMIP6 

    Haarsma, Reindert J.; Roberts, Malcolm J.; Vidale, Pier L.; Senior, Catherine A.; Bellucci, Alessio; Bao, Qing; Chang, Ping; Corti, Susanna; Fuckar, Neven S.; Guemas, Virginie; Hardenberg, Jost von; Hazeleger, Wilco; Kodama, Chihiro; Koenigk, Torben; Leung, L. Ruby; Lu, Jian; Luo, Jing-Jia; Mao, Jiafu; Mizielinski, Matthew S.; Mizuta, Ryo; Nobre, Paulo; Satoh, Masaki; Scoccimarro, Enrico; Semmler, Tido; Small, Justin; von Storch, Jing-Song (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2016-11-22)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Robust projections and predictions of climate variability and change, particularly at regional scales, rely on the driving processes being represented with fidelity in model simulations. The role of enhanced horizontal ...
