Climate change scenarios in CORDEX domains

Organizers: Tereza Cavazos (CICESE, Mexico), Cecilia Conde (UNAM, Mexico), Landy Sánchez (El Colegio de México)

research SESSION

This session focuses on integrated regional climate change scenarios for the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) domains, considering both physical processes and socioeconomic trajectories that describe the future changes unfolding in these regions. On the one hand, the session seeks presentations on multi-model ensembles, global and regional models intercomparisons, and climate change scenarios based on different Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs) using dynamical or statistical downscaling techniques. Climate change studies under different scenarios focused on physical processes characteristic of the regions, trends, extreme events, and detection and attribution are encouraged.  On the other hand, studies exploring the coherence between global and regional Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs), identification of storyline elements, and evaluation of RCP scenarios or SSPs for integrated climate change impacts and adaptation studies in CORDEX domains are also welcome.
