Weather@Home Mexico: New Climate Modelling Experiment Launching Soon

We’re pleased to announce that we will be adding a new regional model to our weather@home regional modelling experiments, covering Mexico and parts of North and South America.

The experiment that will be run with this model will initially be looking at the influence of human-caused climate change on two unusual weather events in 2004/5: the very wet winter season over the northwest of Mexico and the anomalous wet summer over the southeast of Mexico, which was the most active Atlantic hurricane season in recorded history.

This experiment is part of the RECLIM-UK (Regional Climate Projections Initiative Mexico – UK) project, sponsored by the British Council, and will be led by Dr Ruth Cerezo-Mota at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).

You can read more about this new region and experiment on the weather@home Mexico page.

Our volunteers can expect to be running Mexico region models in the next couple of months.
