The core of repath’s climate indexes and data relies on regional climate models (RCMs). These models show how the Earth’s climate is projected to change, based on evaluation of the past centuries. RCMs are the result of dynamically downscaling global climate models (GCMs).
repath uses the latest Regional Climate Model (RCM) simulation ensemble from the Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment Framework (CORDEX) to provide customers with individual physical climate risk analyses at the asset and geolocation level.
CORDEX is a program initiated by the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) to provide high-resolution climate projections for climate impact and adaptation assessment, which supports the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and various environmental conventions.
Our data comes from over 400 regional climate simulations from prestigious climate research centers worldwide, ensuring international collaboration between scientific institutions.
This approach assures us robustness in our results and a better understanding of the uncertainty coming from the simulations, contributing to the fine-scale regional to local climate information generated.
