STORM

Together with other partners of the Cluster of Excellence CliSAP, the MPI-M has been using the MPI-ESM to explore the effects of very high resolution on patterns of climate.  This project, called STORM, is combining an atmosphere model that has 95 levels and a triangular spectral truncation of T255, leading to a grid spacing at mid-latitudes near 25 km, with a tri-polar ocean grid whose average resolution is about 0.1 deg.  The purpose of the STORM simulations is to help understand the effects of qualitiatively new phenomena that emerge at different scales, such as ocean eddies, or the interactions between fluid flows and topography.  For further information please contact Opens window for sending emailDr. Jin-Song von Storch, or visit the storm project webpage More information about ICON is also available as part of the Focus on feature which appeared on our home page during December 2012.

ENIGMA - Earth System Network of Integrated Modelling and Assessment

ENIGMA has intensified and extended the ESRP cooperation towards a better understanding of biospheric control mechanisms of climate and how they are affected by the numerous and strong human influences on terrestrial and marine ecosystems. This led to a collective development of a comprehensive Earth system model, in which the representation of ecosystem feedbacks is improved. Read the whole summary Initiates file downloadhere

PAST4FUTURE

Past4Future is a Collaborative Project under the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission. The Past4Future project investigates the climate and environment of past warm periods (interglacials) to inform on future climate and possible abrupt changes.
