Met Office Hadley Centre Decadal Predictions - SD0507

Description
This work will support the decadal view of climate which will be important for policy consideration and decision making. Examples of use may be decisions about flood management, risks of animal disease and longer term food security. This deliverable is part of the Hadley Centre Climate Programme (HCCP) policy channel E which is designed to support adaption policy.

Objective
This work package consists of three components draw from the HCCP workplan 2012-2015 for the financial year 2013/2014. The components all provide elements of a future climate forecast using initialised climate projection techniques, including establishing robustness of key aspects of the projection system through journal article submissions. The work package draws on underpinning model development and observational datasets developed using the national climate capability. The total amount of effort involved is equivalent to a price of £75K
