Short description:

Aim of the project:
The RCMTéR project aims to contribute to the NAGIS system by providing detailed estimations for future climate change and their potential ranges over Hungary using regional climate models. The output will be used as basic information source for impact assessments caused by climate change.

Summary of the activities:
Climate simulations will be performed with a horizontal resolution of 10 km through the latest versions of two regional climate models: ALADIN-Climate adapted at the Hungarian Meteorological Service and RegCM used at Eötvös Loránd University, Department of Meteorology. Both models are based on the global climate scenarios identified by 5th Assessment Report (AR5) of IPCC. Workshops, meetings and trainings will be held to help potential users to properly utilize and interpret climate projections.

Awarded Grant Amount: 299,996 EUR
