Report on the analysis of RAM performance (D1.7)

  Adaptation is increasingly important for regions around the world where large changes in climate could have an impact on populations and industry. The Brahmaputra - Ganges catchments have a large population, a main industry of agriculture and a growing Hydro-power industry, making the region susceptible to changes in the Indian Summer Monsoon, annually the main water source. The HighNoon project has completed four regional climate model simulations for India and the Himalaya at high resolution (25km) from 1960-2100 to provide an ensemble of simulations for the region. In this paper we have assessed the ensemble for these catchments, comparing the simulations with observations, to give credence that the simulations provide a realistic representation of atmospheric processes and therefore future climate.

Snow and Glacier originated run-off generation (D2.2 & D2.3)

  Work Package 2 aims to revise current run-off generation mechanisms in the Himalaya region, to enable a more differentiated considered snowmelt impact in predictions of future climate change patterns and to improve existing hydrological modelling tools and to adapt them on regional climatic conditions.

The Climate-KIC, Innovating for low-carbon prosperity and climate resilience

  The presentation given during the Roundtable Discussion session 3 on 28 November 2011, focused on Climate-KIC (Climate Knowledge and Innovation Community), a new European 80 million euro initiative for innovation for low carbon prosperity. Climate-KIC has been mainly formulated to provide innovations and guidance for Europe’s climate change agenda, but is open for cooperation with and within India as well. The objectives and the novel approach of Climate-KIC were discussed during the presentation.

Climate change and changing monsoon patterns

  This presentation given during the Roundtable Discussion session 2 on 28 November 2011, mainly discussed the results from global and regional climate model projections generated for the HighNoon study on the Ganges basin in Northern India. While trends in temperature found greater agreements across different models, with respect to rainfall the trends are not very clear. Also a good amount of information on extremes events is still lacking. Dr Kumar discussed a number of limitations and uncertainties associated with climate model outputs and stressed for development of more GCM/RCM ensemble runs and better observation datasets to address some of these gaps. He also suggested that improvements in the use of impact assessment models were important so that climate scenarios can be used more effectively.

Changing monsoon patterns, snow and glacial melt, its impacts and adaptation options in northern India: Synthesis

  This paper gives a synthesis of this special issue on the sensitivity to climate change of the main bio-physical processes in the Hindukush–Karakoram–Himalayas. It also describes the impacts on the water resources with a special focus on the Ganges. Consequences of changes in water resources and possible adaptation measures for different sectors are discussed.

Glaciers, Snow melt and Runoff in the Himalayas - Report on the outcomes of a Trans-Himalayan workshop held at ICIMOD in Kathmandu, Nepal, 6-7 Feb 2012

  HighNoon, with the support of ICIMOD, DFID and the SDC, organised a Trans-Himalayan workshop on "Glacier, Snow Melt and Runoff in the Himalayas" on 6–7 February 2012, at ICIMOD in Kathmandu, Nepal. The two-days workshop aimed at bringing together regional and international researchers, government administration and donor agencies to discuss the current state of cryospheric and glacio-hydrologic research in the wider Hindu Kush – Himalayan region.
