|I am working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Applied Climate Sciences Lab with Dr. John Abatzoglou.|
|We are working on the statistical downscaling of
global climate models (GCMs).
We utilize downscaling methods such as BCSD (Wood et al, 2002) and MACA ( Abatzoglou, Brown, 2011).
The MACA method includes epoch adjustment, bias correction (quantile matching with observations) and constructed analogs (pattern matching with observations).
|We are analyzing future climate predictions from the rcp45,60,85 scenarios
of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project
Phase 5 (CMIP5) in order to understand the
impact of changing climate on:
