CELSIUS: Projecting Temperature climate extremes at regional to urban scales

The CELSIUS project aims to provide new climate change projections for Middle East/North Africa (MENA), including the eastern Mediterranean and Cyprus, at improved spatial precision and emphasis on temperature extremes and the warming over urban areas. The WRF model is used as a regional climate model (RCM) to dynamically downscale, first, meteorological re-analyses in a series of multi-physics simulations over the MENA region. An optimal for this region WRF model configuration will be obtained, by selecting the best performing (in comparison to observations) physical parametrisations set-up. CELSIUS (2019 – 2021) has received funding from the Research & Innovation Foundation (RIF), Republic of Cyprus
