Consortium on regional climatology and adaptation to climate change

Climate Scenarios and Services

  • Issues
  • Objectives
  • Research project

Issues

  • Availability of information about adaptation, particularly for the current and near-future periods (about 20 years)
  • Selection and use of data not gathered through conventional meteorological observation especially useful when observation data are scarce
  • Innovative methods in the post-processing of climate model outputs
  • Documentation of the evolution of climate risks
  • Availability of information about climate extremes
  • Understanding users’ decision-making processes.

Objectives

Provide relevant climate information and expertise to Ouranos members and partners with emphasis on adaptation.

  • Optimize contact with users to increase understanding of their needs and disseminate climate information with the appropriate tools
  • Update and document the bank of observed and simulated climate data as well as data-processing tools
  • Provide scenarios and climate information tailored to user needs and develop innovative projection methods
  • Stimulate the development of knowledge and expertise in scenarios and services

COORDINATOR(S)

Diane Chaumont

+

Diane Chaumont holds a Master’s physical geography from Université de Montréal. During the 1990s, she conducted research on water and sediment sampling, and data analysis, mainly through the St. Lawrence Centre and INRS-ETE (Institut national de la recherche scientifique-eau, terre, environnement). Mrs. Chaumont then joined the Centre de recherche en calcul appliqué (CERCA) to work on twinning hydrological and meteorological models. At Ouranos since 2003, she specializes in analyzing observed climate data and developing hydroclimatic scenarios. Mrs. Chaumont contributes to studies of the impacts of climate change on hydroelectric demand and generation, on water management in multi-user contexts, on agricultural production and on community infrastructure. She has coordinated the Climate Scenarios and Services Group since 2006.
