GMGEC: Climate and large scale modelling group
|Head of unit: |
David SALAS Y MELIA
The Large Scale Meteorology and Climate Department (GMGEC, Toulouse) focuses on understanding scale interactions, interactions between the various components of the climate system, the response of the climate system to anthropogenic forcing, and sources of variability and long-term predictability. These activities are carried out in particular through the modelling of climate, atmospheric composition and air quality at global and regional scales, participation in model intercomparison exercises such as CMIP or CORDEX and their analysis, impact studies and the detection-attribution of observed climate change.
- Climate variability and climate change
- Monthly to decadal climate prediction
- Upper ocean studies and ocean-atmosphere coupling
- From global chemical environment to air quality
- Modelling, understanding and predicting regional climates
- Develop and maintain climate models : global atmospheric ARPEGE-Climat, regional atmospheric CNRM-ALADIN and CNRM-AROME, sea-ice GELATO, coupled global CNRM-CM, Earth System CNRM-ESM, coupled regional CNRM-RCSM
- Contribution to the development of the surface platform SURFEX-CTRIP, of the NEMO and NEMOMED ocean models
- Develop and maintain the atmospheric chemistry model MOCAGE
- Simulation of recent and future climate at global and regional scales, simulation of past climates.
- Statistical studies of model-data comparison (e.g., detection-attribution).
