Research Gate ID: Erik_Kjellstroem

Fields of work

Research related to climate, climate variability and climate change. Focus on regional climate modelling and support for users of climate information. International cooperation within the international CORDEX project.

Research Interests

  • To what extent can climate models reproduce the observed climate?
  • How can ensembles of climate projections be used to illustrate uncertainties and robustness in future climate change?
  • How can climate scenarios be used to provide useful climate services?

Special competences

Analysis of climate model output, comparison between models and observations.
