The focus was on the work of the Cluster of Excellence “Climate, Climate Change and Society” at Universität Hamburg and the Paris Agreement´s climate goals — but also on the Nobel Prize for the Hamburg scientist and long-time director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Prof. Klaus Hasselmann, and the reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), to which Hamburg scientists are leading contributors.
Following the discussion, the guests visited the “Environmental Wind Tunnel Lab”, the university´s boundary layer wind tunnel, and the new high-performance computer at the neighboring German Climate Computing Center.
