Downscaling and Bias-correction of Climate Model Simulations

Contributors
Total time needed: ~5 hours
Objectives
This recipe gives an introduction to the ClimAlign method of downscaling/upsampling climate model output. This is a non-trivial method, from both, the ML and the climate modeling point of view.
Potential Use Cases
Bias-correction and downscaling of climate projection data to higher resolution, e.g. for impact modeling
Who is This For ?
INTERMEDIATEData scientitst interested in climate science; climate and climate change impact modelers interested in more advanced machine learning
