Abstract

This project forms one of five funded as part of the 'Climate Research Programme' . This was funded jointly by NERC and the Met Office with an overarching aim of ensuring that the UK maintains and strengthens its leading international position in climate science, and hence in climate forecasting and provision of advice for climate policy. In its initial phase, five joint research posts and a Programme Manager post were created. The five research posts covered areas of existing collaboration that were considered as priorities for further development by NERC and the Met Office. The JCRP also established a jointly-owned partition (MONSooN) of the new Met Office supercomputer to enable NERC and Met Office scientists to share data and run models on the same platform. It was recognised that the areas of joint interest in both research and facilities extend beyond climate, good examples being the jointly owned research aircraft and existing cooperation on the Argo float programme. Following the ground-breaking development of the JCRP and the level of co-operation that has ensued, it is clear that the benefits of broadening the scope of the JCRP to encompass all areas of joint interest could be substantial. In addition, the increasing appreciation of the seamless nature of weather and climate and the importance of fundamental oceanic and atmospheric processes and weather phenomena in climate prediction is driving a move towards a more unified approach to weather and climate research. These factors have led to the programme being renamed the Joint Weather & Climate Research Programme, JWCRP

Description We have been developing new, very high resolution global climate models, at unprecedented resolutions: 25km in the atmosphere and 1/4 degree in the ocean, which we ran in coupled mode for centennial time scales and with three ensemble members. We have also developed a companion atmosphere-only model, which we have run over similar time scales, using the OSTIA SSTs. Further, we have developed a 12km global climate model, which at the time was at higher resolution than the parent weather prediction model at the Met Office and that can be run without convective parameterisation, a major source of uncertainty in climate projections. Outputs from these models total to about 500TeraBytes and are analysed by twenty research teams worldwide. A new version of that atmospheric model, now at 10km is currently operated in experimental mode.
These models are the foundations for the next-generation coupled models, which we completed, using a 25km atmospheric model and a 1/12 degree (eddy-resolving) ocean model. This model forms the flagship of our submission to the CMIP6 portal, for the Sixth IPCC Assessment Report.
Exploitation Route We continue to collaborate with leading teams worldwide and we have designed a new protocol (HighResMIP) to the organisation (WGCM) that coordinates the sixth Climate Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP), which will support the next IPCC Assessment Report.
We are also using many of the outputs in our COPERNICUS Climate Services grant, WISC, which includes representatives from a number of insurance companies, as well as the OASIS consortium. We are using storm data to assess windstorm risk for a number of European portfolios, via the OASIS simulation engine.

Description The impact of this project is mostly on the Met Office model development teams, who are in fact our most immediate collaborators, but also on global modelling groups worldwide. We have in fact organised and run a special High-resolution Global Climate Modelling session at the 2014 EGU in Vienna and this was oversubscribed, as well as attended by a record number of delegates. The ongoing work undertaken by the JWCRP High-Resolution Climate Modelling (HRCM) group has led to the development of a number of European and international collaborations. These collaborations are reflected by the recent funding of PRIMAVERA, an EU-Horizon 2020 project, launched in November 2015 (15M EUR for 4 years; coordinators: M. Roberts, Met Office; P. L. Vidale, NCAS; involving 19 European partners), and the development of a new IPCC Model Intercomparison Project, HighResMIP, whose protocol is delivered by PRIMAVERA (leads: R. Haarsma, KNMI; M. Roberts, Met Office; subscribed by 26 groups worldwide). The simulation outputs created by the HRCM group are also widely used (USA, Japan, Europe). 8 papers using our data and/or expertise have been accepted for publications this year (Vellinga et al, Tous et al, Liu et al, Walsh et al, Johnson et al, Daloz et al, Roberts et al, Birch et al), and 6 others have been published in 2016 (Schiemann et al, Fang et al, Wu et al, Ogata et al, Haarsma et al, Walters et al., Custodio et al.).

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.
