What is a climate model?

On what basis can future climate be simulated? Here is a brief description ...

Climate simulations

At DKRZ, elaborate climate projections are calculated on a regular basis. Their results show the reactions of the climate system for different scenarios, i.e. for different possible future developments.

Interactive visualization of IPCC simulations

With our new web-based visualization platform, possible future climate changes can be explored interactively and visually in the web browser. On a rotatable and zoomable virtual globe, the temporal course of simulated changes in temperature and precipitation can be visualized for different scenarios.


In our brochures, annual reports and e.g. in a commemorative publication for our 25th anniversary in 2013, you will find many texts and pictures on the topic of climate simulations and high performance computing.

A simple climate model

The MSCM, Monash Simple Climate Model provides interactive experimentation with the climate system through a web interface.
