HadRM3 is the Met Office Hadley Centre's regional climate model used to produce regional (~25km resolution) projections of the future climate.
HadRM3 has been used in UKCP09 to produce 11 runs of regional climate projections at the medium emissions scenario (A1B) on a daily time scale. These 11 runs were used to timescale and downscale the larger ensemble of GCM runs.
- More details about the climate models used in UKCP09 are given in Box 2.1 in the UKCP09 Climate change projections report. A commentary about the strengths and weaknesses of climate models is given in Annex 3.
- An overview of how probabilistic projections are created and presented in UKCP09 is described in Box 3 of the UKCP09 Briefing report. More details are provided in Chapter 3 of the UKCP09 Climate change projections report, including an overview of the methodology in Chapter 3.2.12.
