Potential impacts of climate change on agriculture, water resources, human health, and ecosystems are tied to climates of regions (e.g., provinces, counties or states) rather than to changes in broad continental or global averages. It is therefore imperative to understand and, ideally, to predict how global climate change is manifested at these regional scales. Using GCM output to drive limited-area atmospheric simulations of climate change on regional scales is a promising approach for… CONTINUE READING
