Towards European-scale convection-resolving climate simulations with GPUs
The representation of moist convection in climate models represents a major challenge, as this process is usually parameterized. In a new study, weather and climate simulations using horizontal resolution on the order of 1 km allow deep convection to be explicitly resolved and thus allow for an improved representation of the water cycle.
Nature Communications study presents extreme precipitation projections over Lake Victoria
Lake Victoria in East Africa is known to be stormy at night, with thousands of fishermen dying each year. A new study investigates the controls on extreme thunderstorms over the lake and projects their future change.
New climate science webcasts: building the future and more
Join Oliver Stebler for his new set of climate science webcasts: "Visionär und Macher", where science meets practice in the energy sector, "Die Zukunft bauen" on future cities and urbanisation challenges related to climate change, and a "Best Of" in "Schweizer Gemüse und Espresso"
Sea-ice transport drives freshening of the Southern Ocean
Over the past decades, the northward drift of sea ice surrounding Antarctica has strengthened. This has not only increased the extent of the sea ice, but has also freshened the sea water around the sea-ice edge — with as yet indeterminate consequences for the global climate system and Antarctica’s ecosystem.
