I am recognized as the godfather of regional climate modelling in Canada, a research field that I initiated 25 years ago. I was principal investigator of the Canadian network on regional climate modelling and diagnostics for 15 years. Under my leadership successive versions of the Canadian Regional Climate Model were developed, the most recent one (CRCM5) being used operationally by the Ouranos Consortium to produce high-resolution climate projections over North America.
