It addresses crucial scientific questions in the fields of global change, climate impacts, and sustainable development, with researchers from the natural and social sciences. The organization’s main methods are systems and scenarios analysis, modelling, computer simulation, and data integration. It runs over 100 externally funded projects all over the world.
- Climate Impact: The web portal is a result of climate impact research for different sector
All options, not silver bullets, needed to limit global warming to 1.5°C: a scenario appraisal (2021) – This special report (SR1.5) “presents 414 emissions scenarios modelled for the report” to examine “the necessity of limiting global warming to 1.5°C, in line with the Paris Climate Agreement. “
- Complex systems approaches for Earth system data analysis (2021) – They “summarize recent advances in nonlinear data analysis of both simulated and real-world complex systems, with a focus on recurrence analysis for the investigation of individual or small sets of time series, and complex networks for the analysis of possibly very large, spatiotemporal datasets. We review and explain the recent success of these two key concepts of complexity science with an emphasis on applications for the analysis of geoscientiﬁc and in particular (palaeo-) climate data. “
