About the research

Objective
This effort involved a feasibility study of which factors needed to be modified, and how these modifications should be performed, in order to implement the Local Climatological Model (LCM) in Ontario. The LCM was developed for Swedish conditions and requirements. Therefore, modifications were required in the LCM before installation in a new geographic area. The final report for this project includes a detailed inventory of geographic and meteorological conditions for adaptation in the Ontario region, an assessment of LCM transferability, a description of LCM data requirements, and an outline implementation plan for LCM at the site in Ontario.This effort involved a feasibility study of which factors needed to be modified, and how these modifications should be performed, in order to implement the Local Climatological Model (LCM) in Ontario.
