ClimEMet Research Group
Climate Processes and Environmental Meteorology Research Group
Head: Harald Rieder
The ClimEMet group's primary research objectives are to understand the internal natural variability of the Earth's atmosphere and how changes in individual/multiple forcings affect atmospheric composition/chemistry, dynamics and surface climate on a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. A detailed understanding of both the natural and forced components is crucial because responses to external forcings may project onto natural variability. Separating between natural and forced variations is a challenging task, though key to the assessment and improvement of future predictions. Research in the ClimEMet group covers a broad range of spatial and temporal scales and spans from the stratosphere over the troposphere down to surface climate. A special focus in our work is dedicated to advance the understanding of (un)certainty related with future projections, particular regarding extremes, to provide robust estimates on the impact of changing forcings on the atmosphere and climate system.
