Recently a new generation of realistic, coupled atmosphere-circulation-biogeochemistry-ecosystem simulations has been developed and deployed by our team for the California Current System. Its centerpiece is a multi-decadal hindcast with fine mesoscale grid resolution, with nested subdomains and time periods for focus on particular places and processes (e.g., urban eutrophication in Southern California), as well as regional impact assessments for the future. This webinar will address motivations, methodology, and a sampling of key results. This project and its continuing extensions have meaningful implications for management of climate change at a regional level.
