Statistical-empirical downscaling

PI: Rasmus Benestad
Institution: The Norwegian Meteorological Institute
I read the piece in EOS vol 85, no. 29, July 20, 2004 "Solicitating Participation in Climate Model Analyses leading to IPCC Fourth Assessment. I am interested in participating in the analysis of the results: statistical-empirical downscaling (using a common EOF frame work and clim.pact available from http://cran.r-project.org; see upcoming article in EOS) & model evaluation. I look at trends in mean values, but will also look at extremes.
