Mathematical technique used to apply the projections in global climate models to the regional scale.

Method used to derive local or regional information from large-scale models or data (e.g. global models). There are two main approaches: a) dynamic downscaling uses regional climate models, whereas b) statistical (or empirical) downscaling uses statistical relations that link e.g. atmospheric variables with local / regional climate variables at a macro scale.
