Climate change in the Netherlands : supplements to the KNMI'06 scenarios( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The general scenarios for future climate change in the Netherlands, which KNMI issued in 2006, are not overruled by recent scientific developments. Also according to the present-day knowledge, the four KNMI’06 scenarios together describe the most likely changes in the Netherlands, including asso-ciated uncertainties. This conclusion emerges from an evaluation of research from the past few years, in which specific attention has been paid to the consequences for climate change in our region

KNMI Climate change scenarios 2006 for the Netherlands by B.J.J.M. van den Hurk( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate change scenarios for the Netherlands for temperature, precipitation, potential evaporation and wind for 2050, and for sea level rise for 2050 and 2100 have been constructed using a range of data sources and techniques. The scenario variables have been defined after consultation with a number of potential scenario users. General Circulation Model (GCM) simulations which have become available during the preparation for the upcoming Fourth Assessment report (AR4) of IPCC have been used to derive scenarios of sea level change in the eastern North Atlantic basin and wind speed in the North Sea area. The GCM simulations also were used to span a range of changes in seasonal mean temperature and precipitation over the Netherlands. It was found that most of this range could be related to changes in projected global mean temperature and changes in the strength of seasonal mean western component of the large scale atmospheric flow in the area around the Netherlands. Therefore, temperature and circulation were used to discriminate four different scenarios for temperature, precipitation and potential evaporation, by choosing two different values of global temperature change and two different assumptions about the circulation response. The construction of the extreme precipitation and temperature values and the potential evaporation values was carried out using an ensemble of Regional Climate Model (RCM) simulations and statistical downscaling on observed time series. Additional scaling and weighting rules were designed to generate RCM sub-ensembles matching the seasonal mean precipitation range suggested by the GCMs. The circulation steering parameter has a great impact on the number of precipitation days, the seasonal mean precipitation, and the intensity of extreme precipitation exceeded once every 10 years. Also potential evaporation is affected greatly by the assumed circulation change. Changes of daily mean wind speed exceeded once per year are rather small, compared to the typical interannual variability of this variable. Sea level change scenarios are constructed using a combination of GCM output and a literature survey of sea level change contributions from changes in terrestrial ice masses. For 2100 the scenarios span a range between 35 and 85 cm. This report contains a detailed description of the motivation and rationale of the new KNMI'06 climate scenarios for the Netherlands, and provides a detailed description of the methodology used for each group of variables. A summary table (Table 8-1) lists all final SCEnario values. The last part of the manuscript provides guidelines for the use and interpretation of the scenario values. Also an index is provided with a justification of the Statements made in a popular brochure on the KNMI'06 climate scenarios

KNMI '14 : climate scenarios for the Netherlands : a guide for professionals inclimate adaption by Albert Klein Tank( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

KNMI presents the KNMI’14 climate scenarios: four new scenarios for future climate change in the Netherlands. Each scenario provides a consistent picture of the changes in 12 climate variables, including temperature, precipitation, sea level, and wind. Not only the changes in the mean climate are depicted, but also changes in the extremes such as the coldest winter day and the maximum hourly precipitation per year. The changes are for two different time horizons: around 2050 and around 2085, relative to the reference period of 1981-2010, published in the KNMI climate atlas
KNMI'14 : klimaatscenario's voor Nederland by Albert Klein Tank( )

1 edition published in 2014 in Dutch and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Het KNMI presenteert de KNMI'14-klimaatscenario's: vier nieuwe scenario's voor toekomstige klimaatverandering in Nederland. Ieder scenario geeft een samenhangend beeld van veranderingen in twaalf klimaatvariabelen, waaronder temperatuur, neerslag, zeespiegel en wind. Het gaat om veranderingen niet alleen in het gemiddelde klimaat, maar ook in de extremen, zoals de koudste winterdag en de maximum uurneerslag per jaar. De veranderingen gelden voor het klimaat rond 2050 en 2085 ten opzichte van het klimaat in de referentieperiode 1981-2010, gepubliceerd in de klimaatatlas van het KNMI
Klimaatverandering in Nederland : : aanvullingen op de KNMI'06 scenario's( )

1 edition published in 2009 in Dutch and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De scenario’s die het KNMI in 2006 voor het toekomstige klimaat in Nederland heeft uitgebracht, zijn getoetst aan de nieuwste nationale en internationale inzichten. De resultaten daarvan staan beschreven in een brochure die het KNMI heeft gepubliceerd. Uit deze evaluatie blijkt dat het klimaat in Nederland sterk verandert én dat de toekomstbeelden van het KNMI uit 2006 de meest waarschijnlijke veranderingen goed weergeven
