Regional climate models with locally high resolution are used to investigate small scale phenomena in the weather and climate system, which can't be resolved with coarser global climate models. As with a magnifying glass, the regional model is used to get more regional detail on the basis of global simulation results.

Storm "Christian" In late October 2013, the strong winter storm “Christian” moved quickly across northern Europe, causing massive damages particularly in coastal areas. A climatological assessment of the storm and of a possible relation between its intensity and climate change was carried out with the regional model COSMO-CLM by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG).

Particulate matter from ship emissions The transport and further chemical processes of pollutants in the atmosphere can be simulated with chemistry transport models. At HZG, regional models are used to estimate the contribution of aerosols caused by ship emissions to the mean anthropogenic aerosol load.
