KmMountainsAnalysis: Analysis of Mountain Climate at the Kilometre-Scale Resolution


As part of a PRACE project at the Swiss National Supercomputing Center, we were performing one of the first multi-decadal climate change simulations at the kilometre-scale over High Mountain Asia and further advancing climate assessment over the European Alps by both performing km-scale simulations and improving climate models over this region. The active data storage provided by a PRACE-ICEI project enables us to analyze the extensive climate datasets we have produced and to share insights in peer-reviewed manuscripts. Through our efforts, we will contribute to (i) a better understanding of mountain climate and extreme events at an unprecedented spatial resolution and with a focus on process understanding (ii) improved models for the simulation of climate over complex orography, and (iii) a better understanding of mountain climate change.
