Bias adjustment and downscaling of snow cover fraction projections from regional climate models using remote sensing for the European Alps
21 June 2022
Regional climate models not only provide projections on temperature and precipitation, but also on snow. Here, the authors employed statistical post-processing using satellite observations to reduce bias and uncertainty from model projections of future snow-covered area and duration under different greenhouse gas concentration scenarios for the European Alps. Snow cover area/duration decreased overall in the future, three times more strongly with 4–5° global warming as compared to 1.5–2°.
