Deliverable D8b: Development of the physical/statistical downscaling methodology and application to climate model CLIMBER for BIOCLIM Workpackage 3. Work Package 3, Simulation of the future evolution of the biosphere system using the hierarchical strategy. Modelling Sequential Biosphere Systems under Climate Change for Radioactive Waste Disposal (BIOCLIM).

The overall aim of BIOCLIM is to assess the
possible long term impacts due to climate
change on the safety of radioactive waste
repositories in deep formations. This aim is addressed
through the following specific objectives:
• Development of practical and innovative strategies for
representing sequential climatic changes to the
geosphere-biosphere system for existing sites over
central Europe, addressing the timescale of one
million years, which is relevant to the geological
disposal of radioactive waste.
• Exploration and evaluation of the potential effects of
climate change on the nature of the biosphere
systems used to assess the environmental impact.
• Dissemination of information on the new
methodologies and the results obtained from the
project among the international waste management
community for use in performance assessments of
potential or planned radioactive waste repositories.
This deliverable has the following specific motivations
Its main aim is to provide time series of climatic
variables at the high resolution as needed by
performance assessment (PA) of radioactive waste
repositories, on the basis of coarse output from the
CLIMBER-GREMLINS climate model.
