WP1 Workshop on climate scenarios

See workshop schedule, download scientific presentations and watch videos of the speakers.


The idea for this workshop originates from the ACCESS kick-off meeting in Paris. The aim of the workshop is to communicate to non-climate experts a working knowledge of climate science issues that are important for their research on climate change impacts on different sectors and activities.

September 5 - 6 (starting at 9 or 10 am on the Monday) in Bremen, "Haus der Wissenschaft"


The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • An introduction to climate change due to greenhouse gases and aerosols
  • Expected and observed changes in the Arctic
  • How are climate scenarios generated? What are the inputs, the assumptions , the uncertainties of the scenarios that are e.g. used by IPCC?
  • How do climate models work, what are their components? What are the limitations of current climate models?
  • How large are the biases and uncertainties?
  • What results are produced by climate models, what experiments were made and how do I get access to the data?
  • Can long-term natural variability be distinguished from anthropogenic trends? What uncertainties into future projections are introduced by natural climate variability? What observations do we have concerning long-term variability and how well is this variability reproduced by climate models?

There will be time to discuss the specific needs from climate change projections and what climate models can actually provide.


Please register for this workshop with Lilian Schubert (Lilian.Schubert@awi.de) until August 25 at the latest. Because this workshop was not originally planned in ACCESS, we need to charge a small fee for the rooms and catering.The workshop is part of the ACCESS project and will have a focus on climate change in the Arctic. However, it is open to other groups and we will invite members of different EU-projects to participate in this workshop. Please disseminate this information as you think appropriate.
