4th Workshop SEACLID CORDEX SEA

25/11/2016

The 4th Workshop of the Southeast Asia Regional Climate Downscaling (SEACLID)/
CORDEX Southeast Asia Project and Meeting on the formation of an Empirical Statistical Downscaling (ESD) Group in CORDEX Asia
 
Hanoi, Vietnam, 24-25 November 2016 (and 23 Nov 2016 for ESD meeting)
Workshop venue: Le Van Thiem lecture hall, VNU University of Science, 19 Le Thanh Tong str., Hoan Kiem, Hanoi







Background
 
The Southeast Asia Regional Climate Downscaling (SEACLID) is an APN funded project of the Southeast Asia Regional Climate Initiative (SEARCI).  Officially established in November 2013, the SEACLID project was later streamlined into the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP)’s Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) as one of the three CORDEX domains in Asia and subsequently renamed as SEACLID / CORDEX Southeast Asia. SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia aims to address the urgent needs for high-resolution regional future climate change scenarios for the Southeast Asia region, and to enhance capacity building in regional climate modeling and increase visibility in scientific publications in regional climate. SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia is currently joined by 14 countries and 18 institutions. Detailed about this project can be viewed at http://www.ukm.edu.my/seaclid-cordex.
 
During the first two years implementation of SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia, tremendous progress has been achieved. Currently, the regional climate simulations of CORDEX/Southeast Asia has been completed. In the next few months, project members would carry out analysis and model performance evaluation. To ensure a smooth progression during its final year of implementation, the project 4th workshop will be held from 24-25th Nov 2016 in Hanoi and to be hosted by the VNU University of Science, to facilitate coordination among its members and discussion on model performances, data management and documentation of research output.
 
SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia project members are invited and encouraged to participate and present their model output analysis results at this workshop. Other interested participants and potential data users are most welcome to participate. Scientists / researchers, students, stakeholders and other parties interested in regional climate and SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia activities are welcome.
 
Objectives:
 
The objectives of the workshop are:
 
  1. To discuss the current progress of the project and present the results of analysis of SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia simulations;
  2. To discuss and coordinate efforts on documentation of research output and scientific paper;
  3. To discuss issues related to data archives and ESGF implementation;
  4. To discuss scientific issues relevant to SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia and possible future undertaking.
