The main objective of PREVAL ÖKS NEXTGEN is to guide the development of ÖKS NEXTGEN, in particular to ensure a process that (1) considers a broad set of user needs and values, (2) informs the selection of model ensembles and individual models, and (3) informs the design of a meaningful bias adjustment and statistical downscaling strategy.
PREVAL ÖKS NEXTGEN is one outcome of the started community process within the planed update of the Austrian Climate Scenarios (ÖKS). The main aim of the project is to guide the development of ÖKS, in particular (1) to ensure a process accounting for a broad set of user needs and values, (2) to inform the choice of model ensembles and individual models, and (3) to inform the design of a sensible bias adjustment and statistical downscaling strategy.
In particular, PREVAL ÖKS NEXTGEN has the following four objectives:
