Simulations for CMIP6 / IPCC AR6 (2019)

Within the frame of the international climate model comparison project CMIP6 and with respect to the 6th climate assessment report of the United Nations (IPCC AR6), extensive climate simulations have been carried out with the two Earth system models MPI-ESM HR and MPI-ESM LR and the climate model AWI-CM on DKRZ's supercomputer Mistral.

Regional Climate Projection for Europe: EURO CORDEX

Within the framework of the EURO-CORDEX initiative DKRZ and GERICS have jointly produced animated visualizations showing the projected key changes in temperature and precipitation for Europe during the 21st century.

The July 2019 heat wave in a 4°C warmer world

The visualization shows the AWI global storyline simulations: The three subimages show the same simulated weather sequence - for the pre-industrial climate, for today's climate, and in a 4 degree warmer world. Winds at the 250hPa level (about 10 km altitude, white stripes), daily maximum surface temperature (color scale and contours), and sea ice concentration (white shading) in and around Europe.

CMIP5 / IPCC AR5 climate scenarios

New extensive simulations were carried out by MPI-M and DKRZ with respect to the CMIP5 (IPCC AR5) database. Here, in the section "consortia simulations", you will find numerous visualizations of the experiments using the Earth System Model MPI-ESM.

Temperature Change

Development of the mean temperature change for IPCC scenario A1B based on the mean of all simulations for CMIP3 / IPCC AR4 carried out around the world.
