2012 Climatic Change  
Regional climate projections in the Pacific region are potentially sensitive to a range of existing model biases.  ...  These approaches include model selection, calculating multi model means, downscaling and bias correcting.  ...  Multi-model means Use of a multi-model mean, in general, results in a better simulation of the current climate than any individual model (Reichler and Kim 2008) .  ...

Evaluation of the performance of Euro-CORDEX RCMs for assessing hydrological climate change impacts in Great Britain: a comparison of different spatial resolutions and quantile mapping bias correction methods [article]

Ernesto Pasten-Zapata, Julie Jones, Helen Moggridge, Martin Widmann
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Overall, an increase in RCM resolution does not imply a better simulation of hydrology and bias-correction represents an alternative to ease decision-making.  ...  Bias correction does not improve the representation of daily temporal variability, but it does for monthly variability, in particular when applying DGQM.  ...  The biases are a consequence of systematic model biases in the elevation and a lack of representation of the elevation variability.  ...

Projected Change—Models and Methodology [chapter]

Joanna Wibig, Douglas Maraun, Rasmus Benestad, Erik Kjellström, Philip Lorenz, Ole Bøssing Christensen
2015 Regional Climate Studies  
General (global) circulation models (GCMs) are a useful tool for studying how climate may change in the future. Although GCMs have high temporal resolution, their spatial resolution is low.  ...  The skill of methods for describing regional climate futures is also limited by natural climate variability.  ...  Model Output Statistics The biggest disadvantage of the RCM methodology is probably the occurrence of systematic biases in the present climate simulations.  ...

Refining multi-model projections of temperature extremes by evaluation against land–atmosphere coupling diagnostics

Sebastian Sippel, Jakob Zscheischler, Miguel D. Mahecha, Rene Orth, Markus Reichstein, Martha Vogel, Sonia I. Seneviratne
2017 Earth System Dynamics  
In summary, our approach offers a physically consistent, diagnostic-based avenue to evaluate multi-model ensembles and subsequently reduce model biases in simulated and projected extreme temperatures.  ...  Also the multi-model simulations for the coming decades display decreased absolute temperature extremes in the constrained ensemble.  ...  Furthermore, we acknowledge the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office and the Goddard Earth Sciences (GES) Data and Information Service Center (DISC) for the dissemination of MERRA, MERRA-LAND, and GLDAS  ...
