Recognition and use of the outputs of the Japanese model in the study area selected by PRAA/Ecuador (Papallacta, Blanco Grande or Jeringa, Quijos, and Antisana microcatchments) to carry out the study and determine climate change scenarios.
On the grid determined for the study over the study area, the model in principle interprets the orographic feature located in the center of the grid, consistent with the presence of the Antisana Volcano, identifying it on the contour lines with a centroid at heights of over 4,000 masl.
The figure below shows the study area with its principal orographic feature (Antisana Volcano) in the center of the Antisana microcatchments, where climate change scenarios will be determined under scenario A1B through the use of the high-resolution 20 x 20 km Japanese model.
