Profile

We are concerned with the understanding, modelling and prediction of the climate system on time scales from days to decades.

Our research foci include
•    the understanding of the mechanisms governing the climate systems along with its variations,
•    the predictability of the climate system on time scales from days to decades,
•    the response of the climate system to anthropogenic influences, and
•    the development of climate models.

We contribute to the education of students and early career scientists through
•    lectures and courses at the University of Bremen,
•    organisation and contribution to international summer schools,
•    webinars, and
•    joint research projects.

Our research provides important information for risk management, decision making and society.

To achieve our mission we collaborate with students and scientists from a variety of different nations and fields of expertise. We have in-house and extern cooperations with research groups from other scientific disciplines.
