Climate modelling

Our research groups use regional models to increase current understanding of physical processes in the climate system relevant at scales ranging from continental to regional to local scales. We provide research and data suitable for impact studies to ensure a solid knowledge base for society and for decision-making support. We focus on hydrological and atmospheric processes and long-term changes by employing a wide range of tools including seasonal to decadal climate projections and scenario-based projections. In addition, we explore extreme events and land-atmosphere interactions.

We are leading the Centre for research-based innovation Climate Futures which co-produces new and innovative solutions for predicting and managing climate risks from 10 days to 10 years. We are also key partners in national centres such as the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, the Norwegian Centre for Climate Service (Figure 9) and the Norwegian Research Centre on Sustainable Climate Change Adaptation. We are involved in international initiatives such as the World Climate Research Program sponsored Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiments (CORDEX), which coordinates an extensive effort in multi-model ensemble downscaling at high spatial resolution, in addition to the CORDEX-sponsored Flagship Pilot Studies.
