Environmental Sciences Department Seminar

"CWRF Physics Representation and Climate Prediction at Regional Scales"

Presented by Prof. Xin-Zhong Liang, University of Maryland

Friday, June 20, 2014, 11:00 am — Bldg 815E Conference Room

The CWRF is developed as a Climate extension of the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF) by incorporating numerous improvements in representation of physical processes and integration of external (top, surface, lateral) forcings that are crucial to climate scales, including interactions between landâ€"atmosphereâ€"ocean, convectionâ€"microphysics and cloudâ€"aerosolâ€"radiation, and system consistency throughout all process modules. As a result, the CWRF has demonstrated great capability and excellent performance in simulating the regional climate over U.S. This presentation will focus on the development of CWRF representation of physical processes at regional scales and its added values over the driving general circulation model outputs for seasonal-interannual climate prediction and possible impacts of the present-day model fidelity on future climate projection.
