The Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) is a WCRP (World Climate Research Programme) initiative to provide global coordination of regional climate downscaling for improved regional climate change adaptation and impact assessment. In CORDEX Phase I, the CORDEX South Asia and East Asia groups are preparing 50-km products for each area. Through the efforts of and requests from local scientists, CORDEX Southeast Asia was established in 2013. The 1st WCRP CORDEX science and training workshop in Southeast Asia will be held during 17-21 November 2014 in BMKG Training Center, Citeko Bogor, Indonesia, jointly supported and organized by the Indonesian Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG), WCRP, APN (Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research), MAIRS (Monsoon Asia Integrated Regional Study), Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP), Chinese Academy of Sciences and the National University of Malaysia (UKM). The training workshop is aimed at young scientists who conduct research in regional climate downscaling and climate change impact assessment. Scientific papers on various topics listed below are solicated from scientists within and outside the region.
Workshop Topics: 1. Evaluation of climate simulations in Southeast Asia region from multiple climate models (seasonal and intra-seasonal variability, Typhoon and tropical cyclone, ENSO, drought, heat wave etc.). 2. Assessment of downscaling techniques and their products in Southeast Asia to understand uncertainties accompanying the regional climate projections and to determine the utility of climate model results. 3. Meeting the requests of end-users (hydrology, agriculture, water resources, land cover and ecosystem etc.) on downscaled products, with definition of data types, formats and resolutions, for vulnerability, impacts and adaptation analysis. 4. Training on RCMs modeling, data analysis and applications for young scientists from Southeast Asia.
