Climate Model SimulationsProject description

2015 – 2018

Jannatun completed her PhD with Fiona and Ashish on a very interesting topic - addressing spatial biases in GCMs. She used this very powerful approach - Independent Component Analysis - as a means of removing spatial biases. Her PhD was perhaps the first ever on this issue and led to the following papers (some in submission stage still):

  • Nahar, J., F. Johnson, and A. Sharma (2017), Assessing the extent of non-stationary biases in GCMs, Journal of Hydrology, 549, 148-162, doi:10.1016/j.jhydrol.2017.03.045.
  • Nahar, J., F. Johnson, and A. Sharma (2017), A rank-based approach for correcting systematic biases in spatial disaggregation of coarse-scale climate simulations, Journal of Hydrology, 550, 716-725, doi:10.1016/j.jhydrol.2017.05.045.
