Abstract

Introduction to the STARDEX D12 report.

"This deliverable deals with the application of the different statistical methods for downscaling extremes to the NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data for the period 1958-2000. During this period we have observational data and therefore this deliverable describes a verification of the different downscaling methods, which will enable an inter-comparison of these. For the sake of making a meaningful inter-comparison, it was decided to adopt standard procedures to the widest possible extent.

Therefore, a standard set of regions and a standard set of stations (precipitation and temperature) within the regions was agreed on for the intercomparison. Predictors varied among methods, but it was agreed that all predictors should be based on the NCEP/NCAR reanalysis dataset. Finally, a standard set of extreme indices for precipitation and temperature was defined for the verification procedure and also for use in other deliverables."
