Analysis of heavy precipitation for France using high resolution ALADIN RCM simulations

Abstract : A high resolution version of ALADIN over France is analyzed here in 30- year ERA-40-driven simulations. It is demonstrated that a resolution of 12 km improves some features of the mean precipitation field with respect to the same version at 50 km resolution. This version improves also the representation of precipitation upper quantiles in summer by producing less high precipitation rates.
