Abstract: Global Climate Models (also called General Circulation Models) are the common and primary modelling tools used for studying climate and its change. Although these global models represent the main features of the global climate well, their performance in reproducing regional climate is rather poor, due to their coarse spatial resolution and do not allow detailed regional impact studies. Hence, there is a need to `downscale? these large scale models for studying regional and sub-regional changes using high resolution regional climate models (RCMs) and the study is widely known as regional climate modelling or dynamical downscaling. This research thesis applies high resolution (25 km) ensemble climate simulations using two regional climate models (WRF and PRECIS) run driven by different global models to study future climate changes over Vietnam and applies the results of these simulations to assess hydrological response over the Dakbla river basin in Vietnam using the hydrological model, SWAT.
