I have a confusion about the difference between statistical modeling and statistical downscaling in application and their properties and which one can be used accurately and easily for environmental application such that for precipitation or air pollution.

Statistical modeling is used for predication and estimate parameters, isn't it?Statistical downscaling is used to explain the relationship the large scale climate and local scale climate, isn't it? May someone explain to me please?

  • $\begingroup$ You should give details about the applications you are interested in. I have only ever heard about downscaling in the context of climate models (or otherwise large-scale weather models) where it means trying to find implications of the large-scale model for a specific geographical area, described on a denser grid.
