Calculated change in annual mean temperature (°C) compared to 1971-2000 at the period for 1.5°C global warming

New map data depict regional climate change after a rise in global temperature of 1.5 degrees

Since the Paris meeting in 2015, researchers have been investigating the effects of a rise in global temperature of 1.5 degrees. Now, the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) can present unique data which depict regional climate change after a rise in global temperature of 1.5 degrees.

Climate change shifts timing of European floods

A linkage between climate change and floods has been identified using a new international river flow dataset of unparalleled scale and diversity, to which SMHI has contributed. This is the first time this link has been demonstrated at a continental scale using observational data. A collaborative study with 30 European partners shows that the timing of the floods has shifted across much of Europe, dramatically in some areas.

Map showing climat scenarios for the sea

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.

Example of climate scenario from the online service

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 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.

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.
