CL5.2/AS1.19/OS1.8: Global high-resolution modelling of the atmosphere and ocean (co-organized).

This session aims at gathering the growing high-resolution global climate modelling community to evaluate the consistency between GCMs (atmosphere, ocean or coupled) in response to increasing resolution. We focus on a range of processes that are sensitive to resolution (e.g., tropical cyclones, hydrological cycle, blocking, ocean eddies), and discuss implications for model trustworthiness and planning of simulation campaigns and model intercomparisons.

CL6.6/HS7.9: Improving the representation of climate using high resolution climate and NWP models (co-organized).

This session aims at exploring how very high-resolution models, including the new generation of convection-permitting models, can improve the simulation of climate variables and their future change, with a focus on extreme events. Of particular interest are short-duration precipitation extremes, including their scaling with temperature and the role of large-scale forcing versus local process representation. We discuss how new projections of regional change can be best used for adaptation planning.

Since 1995, the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) has coordinated climate model experiments involving multiple international modeling teams. Through CMIP, climate modelers and scientists from around the world have analyzed and compared state-of-the-art climate model simulations to gain insights into the processes, mechanisms, and consequences of climate variability and climate change. This has led to a better understanding of past, present, and future climate, and CMIP model experiments have routinely been the basis for future climate change assessments made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) [e.g., IPCC, 2013, and references therein].

Le programme transnational SPPEXA-2, /Software for Exascale Computing 2015 a pour objectif de renforcer la coopération scientifique entre l’Allemagne, le Japon et la France sur les défis STIC liés aux thématiques des données massives et du calcul Exaflopique.

Le texte de l’appel à projets est disponible sur le site de la DFG (lead agency sur cet appel transnational) :

Les documents relatifs à la participation des équipes française sont disponibles sur la page dédiée à l’appel SPPEXA sur le site de l’ANR :

L'appel à projets SPPEXA-2 a pour but de financer des projets collaboratifs bi- ou trilatéraux d'une durée de trois ans, afin d'associer équipes allemandes, françaises et japonaises. La DFG prendra en charge la réception et l'évaluation des projets. La décision de financement sera prise conjointement et chaque agence financera ses équipes nationales.
