High-Resolution Landslide Risk projections

We are preparing a high-resolution (0.1° x 0.1°, about 10x10 km) Landslide Risk Index dataset and have now completed the projection of the 5 climate models for emission scenario Shared Socioeconomic Pathway 5-8.5 (SSP5-8.5). Two other SSPs (SSP1-2.6 and SSP2-4.5) are underway. The full dataset will be available late 2022 to be used in forward […]

New research project: Climate Intelligence

We have started a new EU funded four-year international research project named CLINT (CLimate INTelligence) in collaboration with 15 partners including academic institutions, national weather services and ECMWF. CLINT will develop an AI framework of Machine Learning techniques and algorithms to process big climate datasets to improve the detection (spatial patterns), causation (the physical triggers), […]

High-resolution CMIP6 projections now available

We have now new high-resolution simulations based on projection supporting the recent IPCC  report released in August (see AR6 Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis).  This was made possible thanks to the newly released ERA5-Land global reanalysis from Copernicus Climate Change Service. The dataset is obtained by statistically downscaling climate projections from the CMIP6 […]
