Dear WRF Users,

Information below is provided on a climate model downscaling program
called CORDEX.  If you intend to provide WRF simulations for CORDEX,
please particularly make note of the paragraph describing the CORDEX WRF

COordinated Regional climate Downscaling EXperiment (CORDEX) is a
framework aimed at improving coordination of international efforts in
regional climate downscaling research. CORDEX was initiated as a result of
the task Force on Regional Climate Downscaling, formed by the World
Climate Research Program (WCRP). For details on CORDEX, see



Dear CORDEX Community

A wiki has been established for those planning to do WRF simulations for
CORDEX. Because the WRF users community is widely dispersed, this wiki
is to help members of the WRF community communicate their intentions to
each other for CORDEX simulation. It is also intended to allow CORDEX
participants using WRF to coordinate efforts for a CORDEX region and
perhaps engage in collaboration. Please note if others before you have
already registered intentions to simulate a particular region, and work
with them to ensure the most thorough set of WRF simulations for the
region, without repeating work.

The wiki is at
