From the Past into the Future: New Climate Simulations for Science and Society
Hamburg, February 23, 2012 - Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) and the German Climate Computing Center (DKRZ) have carried out new climate simulations using MPI-M's new climate model. The results indicate that the two-degree target could still be achieved if carbon dioxide emissions would be reduced significantly. Within an international model intercomparison project, researchers were able to simulate the complex carbon cycle as well as vegetation dynamics in climate projections for the 21st century. In case of an increase in CO2 emissions the simulations suggest not only an increase in temperature but also a rapid progression of ocean acidification. Oceanic calcifying organisms will be particularly affected. In addition to long-term projections, more detailed climate predictions spanning the next ten years were performed for the first time. The new climate scenario simulations were carried out on DKRZ's supercomputer and occupied one quarter of its total computing capacity over a period of two years.

Kick-off for PalMod: A national paleo climate modelling initiative
With the kick-off meeting on February 1./2. at the Hafencity University Hamburg, the PalMod project has started its ambitious goals to simulate a complete glacial cycle - from the last interglacial to the anthropocene. The PalMod project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Science (BMBF) to understand climate system dynamics and variability during the last glacial cycle.
