Line 1: Line 1:
 +**FPS:​Convective phenomena at high resolution over Europe and the Mediterranean**
 +**Scientific Objectives**
 +  -Investigate convective-scale events, their processes and their changes in a few key regions of Europe and the Mediterranean using convection-permitting RCMs, statistical models and available observations
 +  -Provide a collective assessment of our modeling capacity at convection-permitting scale
 +  -Shape a coherent and collective assessment of the consequences of climate change on convective event impacts at local to regional scales
 +  ​
 +**Science Aims**
 +  -How do Convective events and associated damaging phenomena (heavy precipitation,​ wind storms, flash-floods) respond to changing climate conditions in different climatic regions of Europe?
 +  -Does an improved representation of convective processes and precipitation at convection permitting scales lead to upscaled added value?
 +  -Is it possible to replace costly convection- permitting experiments with physically defensible statistical downscaling approaches such as “convection emulators” that mimic CPMs and are fed by output of conventional- scale RCMs?
