Statistical methods for the analysis of simulated and observed climate data
The brochure "Statistical methods for the analysis of simulated and observed climate data - Applied in projects and institutions dealing with climate change impact and adaptation" is adressed to different users of climate and impact model data as well as observational data who need help in finding suitable methods for their data evaluation. The brochure is not a textbook, which teaches the fundamental concepts of statistics. It rather complements the existing literature and gives suggestions on how practical issues can be solved.
The Report is also available as printed version.
Workshops “Adaptation to climate change in Mountain & Coastal Areas” - transatlantic dialogues
After a successful initial meeting focusing on “Adaptation to climate change in mountain and coastal areas”, that was held 16 -19 April at the Climate Service Center (CSC) in Hamburg, the dialogue was continued on the same topic at the Global Change Institute in Aspen, Colorado 13-16 August.

Statement of Met Office Hadley Centre on the recent pause in warming
© Met Office
Global mean surface temperatures rose rapidly from the 1970s, but have been relatively flat over the most recent 15 years to 2013. This has prompted speculation that human induced global warming is no longer happening, or at least will be much smaller than predicted. Others maintain that this is a temporary pause and that temperatures will again rise at rates seen previously.

Actions for Climate-Induced Migration
Climate-induced migration: THE HAMBURG CONFERENCE DECLARATION
Climate change is not only throwing ecosystems off balance; it is also threatening the livelihoods of many people, which can result in major migrations. But we are currently lacking both reliable data and effective political strategies to deal with these changes, as a conference organized by the Climate Service Center and the KlimaCampus determined and which ended with a joint final declaration.

THE HAMBURG CONFERENCE: Actions for Climate-Induced Migration
On July 16th the three-day conference on climate induced migration. The goal of the Hamburg Conference is to increase knowledge and management inputs through an intensive learning process of decision-making, action and evaluation. Therefore we invite contributions showing tools and actions to deal innovatively with environmental and climate-induced migration.
Central and final aim of the conference is to collect evidence-based knowledge and experiences and produce an outcome document, along the lines of the Nansen Principles on Human Displacements, thus contributing to setting the future agenda on climate induced migration.

New Tool: The Climate-Fact-Sheets
To help in the generation of consistent climate information, the CSC developed the climate-fact-sheets at the request of, and in cooperation with, the KfW-Bank. In a compact and concise form the climate-fact-sheets contain the essential climate characteristics and future climate trends of individual countries or regions worldwide on five to six pages. The climate-fact-sheets represent a new time and effort saving enquiry and planning tool.
