requires boundary conditions at rigid surfaces. The horizontal component of u + is related to the horizontal components of u ′ and u , and so vanishes on vertical sidewalls. The value of w + , the vertical component of u + , at surface or floor is less obvious. (Unlike the horizontal component of the quasi-Stokes velocity, there is no kinematic reason for w + to vanish, since w + exists to satisfy continuity.) The problems are best seen by considering recent direct eddy

investigation. A review of different approaches to regional climate modeling was recently provided by Laprise (2008) . Because of their limited area, RCMs require time-dependent lateral boundary conditions (LBCs). Low-resolution reanalyses or GCM simulations usually provide the LBCs to RCMs. Recent studies showed that, when driven by realistic (appropriate and accurate) boundary conditions, RCMs are capable of capturing the overall observed regional climate evolution and can add realistic higher

flow through the boundary, which implies ψ = 0 on the boundary. The appearance of the lateral diffusion term requires an additional boundary condition, and there are several possibilities that are often discussed and are referred to as dynamic boundary conditions. Pedlosky (1996) considers four: no-slip ∂ ψ /∂ n = 0, free-slip (or stress free) ζ = 0, super-slip ∂ ζ /∂ n = 0, and hyper-slip ∂( ζ + βy )/∂ n = 0, where ∂/∂ n = n  · ∇, and n is the outward normal on the boundary.

interface plays a fundamental role in most mesoscale circulations. The global analysis and global model output themselves contain biases. Interpolations are usually required to preprocess the global data onto regional model grids. The resulting inaccuracies pass through the mesh interface and have the potential to penetrate into the interior of the regional model domain. The accuracy of regional model simulations is then limited by the accuracy of the initial and lateral boundary conditions obtained

aforementioned studies in that we estimate the statistics of decadal North American climate that are consistent with various plausible scenarios of boundary conditions, whereas most other studies to date have followed an ensemble of integrations from a specific, observed initial state. Our forecast is thus constrained solely by the signal associated with the expected change in boundary conditions related to future anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) forcing. A probabilistic decadal prediction is generated
