Welcome to the Center for Climate Systems Modeling (C2SM).
|7 March 2014 - There has been a continued increase of hot extremes over land during the so-called global warming "hiatus". A new commentary in Nature Climate Change by Sonia Seneviratne and colleagues from Australia and Canada shows that this tendency is greater for the most extreme events and more relevant for impacts than changes in global mean temperature. See also reports by Reuters , Climate Central and SRF2.|
|27 February 2014 - C2SM is pleased to welcome a new core staff, Colombe Siegenthaler-Le Drian. Colombe will be working as a scientific programmer in the field of global climate modeling. She is a trained atmospheric physicist and has a large experience in developing and applying the ECHAM-HAMMOZ global coupled model. We wish her a good start and we are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration!|
|17 February 2014 - The SNF Sinergia project TEMPS and the Center for Climate Systems Modeling (C2SM) are announcing a 3-day workshop to be held at the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science of ETH Zurich from 4th to 6th June 2014. The workshop is primarily targeted at climate impact researchers at the PhD or PostDoc level and will consist of focus lectures, hands-on sessions, and round-table discussions.|
|13 December 2013 - C2SM member Ulrike Lohmann won the “The Golden Tricycle” award 2013 for a family-friendly leader. The award honors leaders who enable their members to reconcile work and family life. The award was launched by the Academic Association of Scientific Staff at ETH Zurich, AVETH, and the Office of Equal Opportunities. The first winner also was a C2SM member: Nina Buchmann received the "The Golden Tricycle" in 2007.|
|10 December 2013 - C2SM warmly welcomes three new members: Paolo Burlando (ETH D-BAUG) is professor of Hydrology and Water Resources Management. Pierre Mérel (ETH D-USYS) holds the chair of Agricultural Economics. Anthony Patt (ETH D-USYS) is leading the Human-Environment Systems Group. These new memberships will strengthen the C2SM network in many ways and we look forward to fruitful discussions and collaborations. At the same occasion, Tapio Schneider (ETH D-ERDW) was elected as a new member of the C2SM Steering Committee. He replaces Gerald Haug who had wished to step down from this position. The Steering Committee is deeply grateful to Gerald Haug for his support and work over the past years.|
|2 December 2013 - C2SM co-sponsors the 13th International Swiss Climate Summer School 2014. The theme focuses on “linking land use, land cover, and climate”. Among the keynote speakers are Jonathan Gregory (Met Office/NCAS), Jonathan Overpeck (U Arizona), Julia Pongratz (MPI Hamburg) and Peter Verburg (U Amsterdam). The summer school is open to young researchers (PhD students and Post-Docs). The deadline for registration is December 20. More information can be found on the website. PhD students of C2SM are strongly encouraged to participate.|
|2 December 2013 - C2SM community member Erich Fischer is part of the writing team that presents a new report on extreme weather events to the European Commission in Brussels today. The report was coordinated by the European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC). Focusing on the European scale it incorporates phenomena such as convective storms, hail, lightening, and cold snaps among others. The report also provides a background on extreme value statistics, risk analysis, impacts, and adaptation. It can be downloaded here. Listen to a radio interview with Erich Fischer from Radio Bayern 2 (start at 6:00 min)|
