The storm tide in March 1906

As part of the EXTREMNESS project, scientists from the Institute of Coastal Research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht and the German Meteorological Service in Hamburg have jointly reconstructed and modelled the record storm tide of March 1906.

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.

Regional Climate Projections for Europe: EURO-CORDEX

The EURO-CORDEX and ReKliEs-De ensemble of regional climate model (RCM) simulations provide the basis for analyzing the regional climate changes in Europe. DKRZ and GERICS have jointly produced animated visualizations showing the projected key changes in temperature and precipitation for Europe during the 21. Century.
