Analyses and summaries recently presented in the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicate that many of the dramatic changes observed in the circulation and physical characteristics of the oceans over the past century will continue in the future. As one of the major limitations of the global climate models that are used to estimate these future projections is their relatively coarse resolution, statistical or dynamical downscaling is often needed to provide sufficient spatial detail in the variables of interest. This session will address the downscaling of global climate model variables relevant to marine ecosystems, with emphasis on (1) downscaling techniques and/or their application to particular regions or variables, and (2) analysis of global climate model projections, or results from higher-resolution regional ocean, or coupled atmosphere-ocean models that are forced by, and take their boundary conditions from, global climate models.
