Portal provides easier access to data from climate models

Climate

Introducing the climate4impact.eu data portal which is aimed at researchers and other users who work with the impacts of climate change and need access to data from climate modelling. The portal has been developed within the framework of an EU project.

How will the climate be impacted by future changes to the Arctic's sea ice and snow cover?

OceanographyClimate

This is a key issue in a newly established research project that will examine climate change in the Arctic over the next 30 years. The study will show how the reduced amounts of sea ice and snow in the Arctic are interacting with climate change.

Climate change – this could be the situation in Europe in 30 years time

Climate

In the early 2040s, average global temperatures could have risen two degrees above pre-industrial levels. A research project that examines the effects of a two degree increase in temperature presents a future scenario of the climate change facing Europe.

Increased knowledge of climate change in the Arctic

OceanographyClimate

Changed wind patterns and varying circulation in the ocean affect the future of the Arctic. Researchers have ascertained this after nearly four years of work in a multidisciplinary project to increase knowledge of the climate in the Arctic.

Torrential rainfall a common climate feature in the future

MeteorologyHydrologyClimate

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.

Climate change is affecting water supply in India

HydrologyClimate

Drier in dry areas, wetter in already wet areas. This just about sums up the future water supply situation in India at the end of the century. In areas that are already experiencing water shortages, adaptation to climate change is very important for sustainable development and combatting poverty.

More than 100 climate simulations show the future climate

Climate

Researchers at SMHI have completed over 100 regional climate simulations for Europe, Africa, the Arctic, the Middle East and South Asia within the framework of the CORDEX project. The result is detailed regional material that is unique in its size.

Better infrastructure for continued development of climate models

Climate

More complex climate models make great demands on a well-functioning computer environment. In a newly established EU project, SMHI is developing and simplifying collaboration between researchers by building up the infrastructure and support services for climate research.

Higher temperatures affect intensive rain showers

MeteorologyClimate

Higher temperatures affect the conditions for cloud formation and rainfall. Heavy rain showers, such as summer thunderstorms, are influenced more by temperature than rain from larger widespread rain systems. Heavy rain has far-reaching consequences for society, and these could worsen at higher …
