The 3rd International Workshop on CORDEX East Asia
The 3rd International Workshop on CORDEX-East Asia was held during 11-12 August 2014 at Jeju, Korea, hosted by National Institute of Meteorological Research (NIMR). As a co-sponsor of the workshop, Monsoon Asia Integrated Regional Study (MAIRS) supported travel funding for a few invitees. In total, 35 participants attended from Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, and Malaysia (see the separate file for list of participants). In the opening, Dr. Jae-Cheol Nam, Director-general of NIMR, welcomed all participants and encouraged their active discussion, comments, and even debates by stressing the importance of the workshop.
The major objectives of the workshop are to make general consensus on the plans for next phase CORDEX-East Asia experiments and stimulate more groups to join with CORDEX-EA and its nearby regions such as South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Australasia. Most importantly, during the workshop, domain size with 25 km resolution aimed to be confirmed. In this context, the workshop consists of three sessions featured by combination of short presentation given by chair persons and open discussion with audience on a range of following themes:
1. Summary and updates on the CORDEX and its relevant issues
2. Key scientific issues on the modeling and analysis issues
3. Practical issues on the experiments
