Climate change experiments summarized in the IPCC AR4 report were performed at a
resolution that is too low to resolve regional phenomena such as high-impact weather
events, hurricanes, intense mid-latitude cyclones, coastal dynamics, and topographically
constrained oceanic circulation features. Moreover, the AR4 simulations could not
represent two classes of variability, namely internal gravity waves in the atmosphere and
meso-scale eddies in the ocean.
