CLARIS-La Plata Basin: climate variability and uncertainties
Editors: Enrique Sánchez, Andrea F. Carril (Guest Editors); Filippo Giorgi

This CR Special highlights some of the main findings resulting from the CLARIS LPB EU project (a Europe-South America network for climate change assessment and impact studies in the La Plata Basin). The aim of the project was to understand the more important issues surrounding climate change projections at regional scales, and at the same time to estimate the robustness of these projections. Some of the topics covered in this special are:

  • Characteristics of decadal and interdecadal variability in the observed recent climate as well as in IPCC climate change scenarios
  • Effect of such variability on extreme events in the La Plata Basin
  • Trends and uncertainty in the La Plata Basin IPCC GCM projections
  • Trends and uncertainty in the CLARIS LPB regional ensemble (the first coordinated regional ensemble of climate change projections for South America).
The studies in this CR Special give — for the first time — a comprehensive overview of potential changes in climate in the La Plata Basin, which is a region of major socio-economic importance for South America.
