Regional , Very Heavy Daily Precipitation in NARCCAP Simulations

  title={Regional , Very Heavy Daily Precipitation in NARCCAP Simulations},
  author={S. Kawazoe and William J. Gutowski},
The authors analyze the ability of the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program's ensemble of climate models to simulate very heavy daily precipitation and its supporting processes, comparing simulations that used observation-based boundary conditions with observations. The analysis includes regional climate models and a time-slice global climate model that all used approximately half-degree resolution. Analysis focuses on an upper Mississippi River region for winter (December… CONTINUE READING
