Rapporteur: Victor Dike

Session summary

In late 2018, an ESGF data node for CORDEX-EA domain was established at the APEC Climate Center (APCC) in Korea. In this session, the overall system and infrastructure of the ESGF data node will be introduced. We also explain how to generate metadata and distribute CORDEX-EA data through the ESGF node at the APCC. In addition, application researches using CORDEX-EA data from ESGF will be presented, which includes analysis of future changes in high impact weather and climate and impact studies of regional climate change on hydrology and eco-system. Participants are invited to submit abstracts to this session.

Session description

 This session will be started by introducing the basics of ESGF data node for CORDEX-EA domain established at the APEC Climate Center. Detailed information on CORDEX-EA data in ESGF node and how to generate metadata and distribute CORDEX-EA data through the ESGF node will be given. Participants are invited to submit abstracts to this session, any participant can present their application research using CORDEX-EA data. As an example future extreme weather analysis and impact studies of regional climate change on hydrology and eco-system will be presented. There is no requirement of equipment and restriction of number of participants.
