The state-of-the-art regional climate modeling

EUCP Updates

In EUCP, state-of-the-art regional climate models have been used to produce climate simulations at a resolution that has never been produced before on a European level. This will benefit users by producing improved simulation of extreme events such as intense…

What’s the difference between Predictions and Projections?

EUCP Updates

Climate scientists use the terms ‘predictions’ and ‘projections’ to describe two different kinds of information that are both important on decision timescales. ‘Predictions’ describe the forecasted climate for the next few months or years, which are strongly influenced by natural…
