Western USA climate and hydrology simulations

PI: Phil Duffy
Institution: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory / PCMDI
Additional Investigators: Qingyun Duan, Ian Ferguson, Guido Franco
Abstract:
We would like to address the following issues, all related to climate in California and the Western US:

1a. How well do the models simulate the present climate in this region?
1b. How well do the models simulate droughts in this region?
2. What is the range of projected regional climate responses to increased atmospheric CO2?
3. What are prohected river flows in the region? (This will be addressed by using statistically downscaled IPCC AR4 results to drive a suite of surface hydrology models.)
