HydrOlogical cYcle Understanding vIa Process-bAsed GlObal Detection, Attribution and prediction (Horyuji PAGODA)

Lead Research Organisation: University of Reading
Department Name: Meteorology

Abstract

PAGODA will focus on the global dimensions of changes in the water cycle in the atmosphere, land, and oceans. The overarching aim is to increase confidence in projections of the changing water cycle on global-to-regional scales through a process-based detection, attribution and prediction. The scientific scope prioritises themes 2,1,3,4 in the AO, adopting a focus on climate processes to extend our understanding of the causes of water source/sink uncertainty at the regional scale, which is where GCMs show huge variations concerning projected changes in precipitation, evaporation, and other water related variables. This model uncertainty is closely linked to shifts in large-scale circulation patterns and surface feedback processes, which differ between models. Furthermore, even where models agree with each other (for example, the suggested trend towards wetter winters and drier summers in Europe, connected to storm tracks and land surface processes), consistency with the real world cannot be taken for granted. The importance of quantitative comparisons between models and observations cannot be overstated: there is opportunity and urgent need for research to understand the processes that are driving changes in the water cycle, on spatial scales that range from global to microscopic, and to establish whether apparent discrepancies are attributable to observational uncertainties, to errors in the specification of forcings, or to model limitations. PAGODA will achieve its scientific objectives by confronting models with observations and reconciling observations, which possess inherent uncertainty and heterogeneity, with robust chains of physical mechanisms - employing model analysis and experiments in an integral way. Detection and attribution is applied throughout, in an iterative fashion, to merge the understanding from observations and models consistently, in order to isolate processes and identify causality. PAGODA is designed to focus specifically on the processes that govern global-to-regional scale changes in the water cycle, particularly on decadal timescales (the timescale of anthropogenic climate change). It addresses processes in the atmosphere, land and oceans, and brings together experts in climate observations, climate models, and detection and attribution. It seeks to exploit important new opportunities for research progress, including new observational data sets (e.g. ocean salinity reanalysis, TRMM and SSMIS satellite products, long precipitation records), new models (HadGEM3 & new capabilities for high resolution simulations), and the new CMIP5 model inter-comparison and to develop new methodologies for process-based detection, attribution and prediction.

Description We found that traditional climate models are unable to simulate the global hydrological cycle, in particular the transport of water vapour from the sea to the land, with sufficient fidelity. As we study the problem with high-resolution Global Climate Models, this fidelity increases, until our simulation starts to reproduce the observed strength of the hydrological cycle. This has prompted a number of other studies, funded under a different grant (EU-H2020 PRIMAVERA), which tested our finding in a multi-model context (published in Vanniere et al. 2018). The same result was found, which makes our original finding robust.
Exploitation Route They already have, as indicated above, as part of the EU-H2020 PRIMAVERA programme.

PI Contribution The collaboration via the various European Network activities have funded a post-doctoral researcher here at Reading. Moreover, the collaboration has enabled a secretariat in Paris that helped organise and run three European Earth System Modelling Summer Schools, which were held in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
Collaborator Contribution Partners contributed development time for the School materials, notes, etc. as well as a substantial amount of supercomputing time for running and analysing the Summer School modelling experiments. Further, each partner contributed 5-6 of post-doctoral demonstrators who came to the School for the duration (10 days each edition) and circa 20 lecturers, who came to the School for one day each.
Impact A number of new modelling environment tools have been developed by the collaboration, which are shared by the partners with their home institutions (research and operational centres). Further particulars on the ENES/ESIWACE web sites. For the UK, and this grant in particular, a modified ocean-atmosphere coupled (OASIS) has enabled us to exploit parallelism on Archer and the Met Office supercomputer. This is an extremely valuable contribution, as previously we were unable to perform large simulations in coupled mode, as the coupler did not scale. With regards to the Schools specifically, we have developed joint notes, scripts, etc., which guide the students in performing and analysing experiments.

PI Contribution We formed a working group to study hurricanes and typhoons in a range of high-resolution global climate models. This required accessing a number of high-profile simulations for common analysis, sharing tools, but also generating a number of new simulations to study the robustness of the climate change response of hurricanes in the climate system. A number of joint publications have emerged in a special issue of the Journal of Climate.
Collaborator Contribution Each partner contributed simulation data, analysis tools and PDRA time. A few partners provided supercomputing time. Columbia provided storage space for joint analysis.
Impact A special issue of the Journal of Climate was published in 2015. We are co-authors in three of those papers. A synthesis paper (Walsh et al.) appeared in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. The collaboration is multi-disciplinary, in that some of the papers address societal issues, particularly around the area of predictability and civil protection.
