Within the framework of the CELSIUS project, new regional climate change projections have been produced for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), with emphasis on the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East (EMME) and Cyprus.

The WRF model was applied to downscale global fields from the CCSM4 model in historical and scenario (RCP4.5 and RCP8.5) runs for different global warming levels.

The main results are highlighted for different regional climate model resolution, geographical domain and climate variable or index (click on the title to reach the respective results page).

 

MENA 24 km

 

EMME 16 and 4 km

 

CYPRUS 4 km
