    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)

    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 restringit per política de l'editorial
    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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)

    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 obert
    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 ...
