The state-of-the-art and fundamental aspects of regional climate modeling in South America
Regional climate models have been used since 1989 in order to improve climate simulation in regions where mesoscaleforcings modulate the regional climate. These models are driven by time-dependent lateral boundary conditions fromglobal climate models or reanalysis, and this process is called dynamical downscaling. Here, we review the evolutionof regional climate modeling, as well as present the studies developed for South America.
