Looking At Peru's Climatologies
I helped develop a country specific climate report for Peru, South America in preparation for USAID (United State Agency for International Development) climate adaptation missions. The report discussed the past climatologies of three regions within the country, reviewed multi-model ensemble projections for future climate based on CMIP5, and evaluated the validity of these forecasts.
Running and Evaluating Climate Models
As part of this project I conducted a review of existing climate literature for this region, evaluated historical climatological data and calculated 3 regional climatologies, and generating projected climatologies for 3 regions using the CMIP5 model ensemble used by the UNFCC IPCC. I also conducted a qunatitative analysis of the model validity for all 3 regions by doinging hindcasts with the CMIP5 models which the image above shows.
