EURO-CORDEX

Description

EURO-CORDEX is the European branch of the CORDEX initiative and will produce ensemble climate simulations based on multiple dynamical and empirical-statistical downscaling models forced by multiple global climate models from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5).

The CORDEX regional climate model (RCM) simulations for EURO-CORDEX are conducted at two different spatial resolutions, the general CORDEX resolution of 0.44 degree (EUR-44, ~50 km) and additionally the finer resolution of 0.11 degree (EUR-11, ~12.5km).

The idea of this website is to provide a portal for cooperation between researchers of the CORDEX community and to provide a platform of information for users of data and any kind of societal actor.
