Regional Climate Modeling: Climate Change, Agriculture, Hydrology and extreme events

RSM 2019- 24th to 27th September 2019: Contextualizing for the Indian Monsoon


The Regional Spectral Model (RSM) originally developed at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) has been used extensively in regional downscaling of coarse resolution forecasts, analyses and simulations, which is one of the hottest topics in atmospheric modeling. Recently, RSM has been coupled with Regional Ocean Modeling System or ROMS, and atmosphere-ocean coupled regional simulations have been conducted (Li et al., 2012; Li et al., 2013; etc.). During last workshop ocean-atmospheric coupled regional modelling system (RSM-ROMS) was introduced. This model is tested successfully on various HPC platforms. Recent studies by Misra et al. (2016, 2017, 2018) and Misra and Mishra (2016) demonstrated encouraging results of climate data (CMPI5 models, R2 analysis, ERA analysis) dynamical downscaling over Indian Monsoon and North American regions. India has been one of the primary user of RSM, organizing this event in Indian subcontinent is aimed to further enhanced outreach and availability of model to researchers at Institute and university levels. User's experience with RSM/RSM-ROMS and recent model developments will be shared during this International Workshop. The remaining objectives are, as in past years, to provide opportunities for the RSM community to exchange their regional downscaling modeling findings using different versions of RSM. Those versions are (1) the Spectral GSM and RSM merged system (G-RSM) at Scripps/FSU/U-Tokyo, (2) NCEP RSM and MSM, (3)RSM at NCSU and FUNCEME, (4) GRIMS at Yonsei University, (5) CWB RSM at CWB, (6) RSM/MSM at NDU, and others. Furthermore, the RSM workshops are designed to gather together international regional model developers and users, to learn the latest modeling features being developed. Through these discussions we wish to formulate future plans for RSM development.


Abstract submission due by July 31, 2019
(Registration with travel support request and/or visa application due by July 31, 2019.)
Abstract acceptance and an invitation letter will be sent by August 15, 2019
Registration without travel or visa support due by September 1, 2019


This workshop does not exclude participation by modelers other than GSM, RSM, and MSM users. In fact, we strongly encourage people engaged with other models to attend, compare results, and discuss general regional model-related problems. There is increasingly high demand for RCM products from impact modelers and practitioners in seasonal forecasts and climate change issues. Therefore, an invitation to participate in the workshop is extended to end-users of the simulation results from RCMs on various time scales for application (climate risk management, wildfire, agriculture, water resources management, energy, etc). Through these discussions we wish to formulate future plans for RSM development.
