New knowledge of climate effects on lakes thanks to open data

The European Union’s focus on acquiring data in Copernicus, a European cooperation for monitoring of the earth, has made a large amount of data openly accessible and useable. In a case study of climate change in water courses in Jönköping County, SMHI has created new knowledge to the benefit of the County Administrative Board. The case study is one of many in an online water-management service based on data from the Copernicus programme.

Regional climate scenarios key for local climate work

Improved regional climate models are invaluable for regional and local climate information, for planning of climate change measures, and for climate services over the next 20 years. One of the challenges is identifying the information that is most interesting for users.

International climate educations

African decision-makers visit SMHI for climate education programme

For three weeks, SMHI in Norrköping has hosted close to 30 officials from East Africa. They are taking part in an education programme on climate change and on how societies can adapt to an altered climate and prevent crises.

SMHI will be conducting a total of nine climate education programmes over a five-year period. Around 250 decision-makers from nine African countries will participate, all in all.

Climate scenarios for the sea

Effects of present climate change can be seen also in the oceans. Result from calculations of how different ocean parameters change depending on the chosen climate scenario.

Climate Scenarios

The results from SMHI’s climate research at the Rossby Centre are found here. Climate scenarios are presented on maps, as diagrams and as downloadable data.

Climate Indicators

We are probably facing a dramatic change in the earth’s climate, which will affect society in many different ways. There is therefore a need to continuously follow the changes in our climate, so SMHI has produced a number of climate indicators for this purpose.

Climate Research at the Rossby Centre

The Rossby Centre pursues research on climate processes and the behaviour of the climate system. The principal tools are global and regional climate models developed within the research unit.

The sea is often in focus as a resource for society and its people, for recreation and for transportation. A sustainable environment and climate development are prerequisites for a sustainable use of ocean and its resources. SMHI provides the individual, government, researchers and the international community with data, forecasts and scenarios, and current information.
