Regional Climate Development Under Global Warming
RegClim is a project developing different scenario for the climatic evolution in the Nordic region, adjacent ocean and parts of the Arctic in case of global warming. A goal is to indicate uncertainty linked to the scenario and physical processes important for the climate in our area. The project is divided into 5 parts, each with its own subsidiary goal:
- Develop regional scenario for atmospheric variables based on results from acknowledged global models.
- Develop regional scenario for the climate development in the ocean and the Arctic based on results from acknowledged global models.
- Increase understanding of how processes in the ocean affects the global and the regional climate.
- Calculate the effect on the global climate by atmospheric aerosols, and then estimate uncertainties in regional scenarios.
- Develop method to be able to investigate uncertainties linked to greenhouse gases and the effect of particles.
Five Norwegian institutes participates:
- Norwegian Meteorological Institute
- Institute of Marine Research
- Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center
- Geophysical Institute - University of Bergen
- Department of Geosciences, Section for Meteorology and Oceanography - University of Oslo (MeO-UiO)
