Climate change prediction over complex areas: spatial variability of uncertainties and predictions over the Pyrenees from a set of regional climate models



Climate change prediction over complex areas: spatial variability of uncertainties and predictions over the Pyrenees from a set of regional climate models



International Journal of Climatology 28(11): 1535-1550



We used a set of six regional climate models (RCMs) from PRUDENCE project to analyse the uncertainties and direction and magnitude of the expected changes on precipitation and temperature (B2 and A2 scenarios) for the end of the 21st century in the Pyrenees, south of Europe. There have been few studies of climate change effects on this mountain range, though there can be noticeable impacts on the economy and ecology of the region and the surrounding lowlands.
