Climate Change Study Over East Asia During the 21st Century Using Different IPCC Scenarios

PI: G. P. Singh
Institution: Pukyong National University, Korea
Additional Investigators: Young Min Min, Jin Young Kim
Regional and global climate change has become central problems facing the world today. Several studies have pointed out that the climate change caused by global warming will have a large effect on our environment, social life and ecosystem and a scenario for regional climate change is urgently required for the detail assessment of these impacts. Generally, scenarios are produced by using high resolution global climate models GCMs). There are many GCMs developed in various institutions and weather service centers. The performances of different GCMs are also varies region to region. It is therefore, necessary to first identify the models which are performing well over our study domain. IPCC standard output from coupled ocean atmosphere GCM’s are available. These data archives may be very helpful for this type of study. The main objectives of my proposal are:

(1) Identify the best model over our domain using various statistical measures for few meteorological parameters.

(2) Validation of current climate using temperature and precipitation fields during different seasons.

(3) Changes in circulation structure, cloudiness and surface hydrological variables to better understand climate change signals.

(4) Some studies related with the summer monsoon mainly over South and East Asia.
