General Information
Climate Change and Impact Research: The Mediterranean Environment

The purpose of this project is to document recent trends in climatic variables, such as near surface air temperature, precipitation, storminess in the Mediterranean Basin and the thermohaline state of the Mediterranean Sea, to assess their strength relative to the range of natural variations and to interpret non-natural trends in the framework of climate change scenarios, trends vs. natural climate variability (detection of anthropogenic signals). In this multi-partner project, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht will contribute to the "detection and attribution" methodology of regional climate change.
