Current Progress [as of August 2016]

SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia has made tremendous progress since SEACLID inception in November 2013. With the streamlining of SEACLD into CORDEX and the rebranding of SEACLID into SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia, additional 7 countries have joined the effort and contributed runs. As of the current time, most production runs have been completed (see Table below).

The challenge is to organize this massive model data into an efficient system that can be accessed freely and efficiently by user community. For this, SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia is establishing an ESGF node, which will be hosted by the Ramkamhaeng University Regional Climate Change and Renewable Energy Research Center. We hope to be able open the access to this ESGF node by before middle of 2017.

Effort is underway by the members of SEACLID/CORDEX SEA to analyze the simulation output and preliminary analysis results will be presented during the SEACLID/CORDEX Southeast Asia 4th Workshop 24-25 November 2016, Hanoi, Vietnam. At the same time effort is being formulated and organized to involve many collaborators to "distill" the simulation ouput into "regional climate information" that can be provided to user groups.
