  • Impact of aerosol microphysical properties on mass scattering cross sections 

    Obiso, Vincenzo; Pandolfi, Marco; Ealo, Marina; Jorba, Oriol (Elsevier, 2017-10)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Highlights • Aerosol scattering simulated under variable microphysical properties (visible range). • Sensitivity of scattering to microphysical properties depends on particle mean size. • Scattering spectral dependence ...
  • Multi-scale enhancement of climate prediction over land by increasing the model sensitivity to vegetation variability in EC-Earth 

    Alessandri, Andrea; Catalano, Franco; de Felice, Matteo; van der Hurk, Bart; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco; Boussetta, Souhail; Balsamo, Gianpaolo; Miller, Paul A. (Springer, 2017-08)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The EC-Earth earth system model has been recently developed to include the dynamics of vegetation. In its original formulation, vegetation variability is simply operated by the Leaf Area Index (LAI), which affects climate ...
  • Summer drought predictability over Europe: empirical versus dynamical forecasts 

    Turco, Marco; Ceglar, Andrej; Prodhomme, Chloé; Soret, Albert; Toreti, Andrea; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (IOP Publishing, 2017-07-27)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Seasonal climate forecasts could be an important planning tool for farmers, government and insurance companies that can lead to better and timely management of seasonal climate risks. However, climate seasonal forecasts ...
  • Revisiting the ENSO Teleconnection to the Tropical North Atlantic 

    García-Serrano, Javier; Cassou, Christophe; Douville, Hervé; Giannini, Alessandra; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (American Meteorological Society, 2017-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    One of the most robust remote impacts of El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is the teleconnection to tropical North Atlantic (TNA) sea surface temperature (SST) in boreal spring. However, important questions still remain ...
  • Optimizing domain decomposition in an ocean model: the case of NEMO 

    Tintó, Oriol; Acosta, Mario; Castrillo, Miguel; Cortés, Ana; Sanchez, Alicia; Serradell, Kim; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J. (Elsevier, 2017)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Earth System Models are critical tools for the study of our climate and its future trends. These models are in constant evolution and their growing complexity entails an incrementing demand of the resources they require. ...
  • Seasonal Climate Prediction: A New Source of Information for the Management of Wind Energy Resources 

    Torralba, Verónica; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J.; MacLeod, Dave; Christel, Isadora; Davis, Melanie (Springer International Publishing, 2017-04-19)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Climate predictions tailored to the wind energy sector represent an innovation in the use of climate information to better manage the future variability of wind energy resources. Wind energy users have traditionally employed ...
  • Investigating the quality of modeled aerosol profiles based on combined lidar and sunphotometer data 

    Siomos, Nikolaos; Balis, Dimitris S.; Poupkou, Anastasia; Liora, Natalia; Spyridon, Dimopoulos; Melas, Dimitris; Giannakaki, Eleni; Filioglou, Maria; Basart, Sara; Chaikovsky, Anatoli (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2017-06-14)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this study we present an evaluation of the Comprehensive Air Quality Model with extensions (CAMx) for Thessaloniki using radiometric and lidar data. The aerosol mass concentration profiles of CAMx are compared against ...
  • Reanalysis of climate influences on Atlantic tropical cyclone activity using cluster analysis 

    Boudreault, Mathieu; Caron, Louis-Philippe; Camargo, Suzana J. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2017-04-25)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    We analyze, using Poisson regressions, the main climate influences on North Atlantic tropical cyclone activity. The analysis is performed using not only various time series of basin-wide storm counts but also various series ...
  • Bias correction and downscaling of future RCM precipitation projections using a MOS-Analog technique 

    Turco, Marco; Llasat, Maria C.; Herrera, Sixto; Gutierrez, Jose M. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2017-03-06)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this study we assess the suitability of a recently introduced analog-based Model Output Statistics (MOS) downscaling method (referred to as MOS-Analog) for climate change studies and compare the results with a quantile ...
  • 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 ...
