Pacific Small Island Developing States (PSIDS) are vulnerable to the adverse effects of changing climate, especially extreme weather such as heavy precipitation leading to flash floods. A problem in assessing the vulnerability of PSIDS to rising weather and climate extremes is a lack of a high spatial resolution climate projection dataset capable of resolving islands (Mycoo et al., 2022). Current projections using Phase 6 of the Climate Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) dataset are quite coarse to fully capture the complexity... View Article
