Baltic Earth research programme takes more durable form

The Earth System Science programme called Baltic Earth is now entering a permanent phase after an initial year of development. Baltic Earth enables researchers to co-ordinate transnational research around the Baltic Sea.

Regional climate models discussed at Lund conference

More than 200 researchers from around the world are meeting this week in Lund to evaluate the recent development of regional climate models. These models have certainly been improved greatly in recent years; they can be refined further to provide even better support for the preparations we must make for future climate change.

Researchers recreate European weather

A comprehensive reanalysis project will recreate the weather across Europe for the past 30 years. Precipitation, temperature, wind and air pressure, etc. are described at ground level and 30 km up in the atmosphere. The result is highly interesting for research and climate adaptation alike.

Future of the Baltic Sea the focus of new research

The problems associated with eutrophication have long affected the Baltic Sea. Large blooms of toxic algae, oxygen-free bottoms and changes to composition of species have all impacted on the sea. Four years of research will provide more knowledge about the future of the Baltic.

RESEARCH

Development of forecasts for direct solar radiation

Short-term forecasts for direct solar radiation will be developed by researchers from SMHI within the framework of a European research project on solar energy.

Future torrential rainfall

Changes in the climate are expected to result in heavier rainfall. Calculations with climate models show that a heavy downpour will give 20-30 per cent more rain at the turn of the next century.
