High resolution future climate model simulations for the northwest Atlantic shelf / by David Brickman, Zeliang Wang, and Brendan DeTracey.: Fs97-18/315E-PDF

“Future climate modelling of the ocean is typically performed using a low resolution ocean model, with grid dimensions ranging from 50-200 kms. While this resolution is able to capture some large scale open ocean properties, it is not sufficient for shelf scale processes or in regions, such as Atlantic Canada, where higher resolution is known to be required to accurately simulate ocean processes. This report describes and applies a downscaling technique to force a high resolution (1/12 degree) ocean model of the entire North Atlantic Ocean, which is used to assess a limited number of future climate change scenarios on the shelf seas of Atlantic Canada. Output from the future climate simulations is compared to the present climate simulation to produce predictions of climate change for the Atlantic Canada region”--Abstract.
