CORDEX.be: COordinated Regional Climate Downscaling EXperiment and beyond
CORDEX.be provides a framework that aims to gather existing and ongoing Belgian research activities in the domain of climate modeling to create a coherent scientific basis for future climate services in Belgium.
CORDEX.be is based on the international CORDEX (“COordinated Regional Climate Downscaling EXperiment”) project but the “.be” indicates it will go beyond for Belgium. The CORDEX.be project is a partnership of different research institutes and universities.
In order to downscale the outcomes of the 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC AR5) to the specific requests for climate services at the Belgian scale, the following four targets are set:
Target 1: Contribution to the CORDEX project
Target 2: Beyond CORDEX: High-Resolution Limited Area Model runs
Target 3: Beyond CORDEX: Local-Impact Models
Target 4: Inferring the climate uncertainties to the Belgian level
