Interactive web-visualization of IPCC scenario simulations

Interactive web-visualization of IPCC scenario simulations

Oct 09, 2019: The new interactive web visualization platform www.dkrz.de/webvis enables internet users to explore interactively and visually possible future climate changes using their web browsers. The platform displays simulated climate changes from scenario simulations on a rotatable and scalable virtual globe. To date, the data available for visualization include simulated changes in temperature and precipitation over time. For a direct comparison, different scenarios or seasons can be displayed side by side. The data originate from simulations with the earth system model MPI-ESM carried out with respect to the fifth IPCC assessment report.

Support of the Data Distribution Centres for the 6th IPCC Assessment Report

Jul 04, 2019: Currently the sixth IPCC Assessment Report (AR6) is being prepared. The IPCC's Data Distribution Centre (DDC) co-jointly with Working Group I (WG I), has set itself the goal of making the results of the AR6 more transparent and comprehensible. For this purpose, for the first time guidelines for the use of data in the AR6 are being drawn up. These describe how data and software used should be documented and cited, or how the illustrations and tables of the AR6 were derived from the data.

Jun 20, 2019: Am 14. Juni fand am DKRZ die Abschlussveranstaltung des Schulprojekts Klimawandel statt. Das 2005 gestartete Schulprojekt Klimawandel ist eine Kooperation zwischen Instituten der Klimaforschung in Hamburg, darunter das DKRZ, und zwölf Schulen in Hamburg und Schleswig-Holstein. Leider konnte bisher für die aus Altersgründen ausscheidende Projektleitung keine Nachfolge finanziert werden. Nicht nur während des Vortragsprogrammes - auch während der Gespräche beim anschließenden Ausklang mit Snacks und Getränken waren sich alle Veranstaltungsteilnehmer einig, dass eine Fortführung eines derartig erfolgreichen Projektes mehr als wünschenswert ist und diskutierten verschiedene Ideen, um dies zu ermöglichen. Rainer Köker, der stellvertretend für Schulsenator Thies Rabe die Veranstaltung besuchte, versicherte, sich in der Schulbehörde für eine Weiterführung des Projektes einzusetzen.

The MPI-Grand Ensemble (MPI-GE) is now available from ESGF

The MPI-Grand Ensemble (MPI-GE) is now available from ESGF

Feb 07, 2019: The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) Grand Ensemble (MPI-GE) is the largest ensemble of a single state-of-the-art comprehensive climate model (MPI-ESM 1.1) currently available. The MPI-GE consists of five ensembles of 100 simulations each under different forcing scenarios, where the forcing scenarios correspond to those used in CMIP5. MPI-GE allows to address scientific questions that could not be answered in the past, such as: Does internal variability of the climate system change under different forcing conditions? Furthermore, novel approaches of comparing the model’s internal variability with estimated observed variability can be applied.
