Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF): Puerto Rico & US Virgin Islands Dynamical Downscaled Climate Change ProjectionsPublished in 2018.
The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model was used to downscale select general circulation models (GCMs) that participated in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5). WRF was used to produce output at a 2-km horizontal resolution for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands by applying a 30-km/10- km/2-km one-way nest. Data from each nest was archived. Two twenty-year time slices from two CMIP5 GCMs were dynamically downscaled using WRF, a historical time slice (1985-2005) and a future time slice (2040-2060). The CMIP5 GCMs downscaled included the Community Climate System Model (CCSM4) and the Centre National de Recherches Meteorologiques-CERFACS (CNRM). The high Greenhouse Gas Emission Scenario, RCP8.5, was downscaled for the future time slice. The output parameters saved were in response to the needs of physical scientists and other stakeholders within the islands, including ecologists, biologists, and hydrologists.www.sciencebase.gov
