The 2015 edition of the ETH-Klimarunde is about climat, policy, and CO2-neutral technologies: "Vision Null: Wege zu einer CO2-neutralen Gesellschaft"
C2SM fosters research across disciplines for a better understanding of the climate and weather systems.
C2SM combines the expertise in climate modeling and data of five partner institutions into one scientific and technical network.
The new Sinergia project crCLIM will develop convection-resolving climate modeling capability for the next generation of supercomputing architectures.
C2SM and partner institutions organised the 2015 Swiss Climate Summer School, which focus was on extreme events in the climate system.
The carbon sink in the Southern Ocean was thought to have weakened in recent decades. But a new study shows that the carbon sink has regained its strength to take up anthropogenic CO2.
Using this new supercomputer, C2SM-partner MeteoSwiss will run their weather model at higher resolution and produce improved weather forecast.
A new study published in Environmental Research Letters suggests that simple models overestimate how much carbon we can emit if we want to stay below 2°C in the next centuries.
Dr. Elias Zubler joined C2SM in August and will coordinate the new Swiss climate change scenarios, CH2018, together with MeteoSwiss.
C2SM members Stephan Pfahl, Heini Wernli, and Mischa Croci-Maspoli have analysed meteorological data from the past two decades to shed light on the formation of high pressure systems.

Research projects under the umbrella of C2SM investigate the climate system and its components at various spatio-temporal scales.
C2SM provides support in several aspects, including climate modeling, climate data access, and activities related to outreach and education.
C2SM contributes to the organisation of summer schools and master programs, and provides technical training in areas related to climate modeling and data.
