Prediction of regional scenarios and uncertainties for defining european climate change risks and effects

Objective

PRUDENCE proposes to co-ordinate the analysis, and demonstrates the use, of European high-resolution climate change modelling involving 4 high-resolution Atmospheric General Circulation Models (Acmes) , 8 Regional Climate Models (ROMs ) and several climate impacts models. Due to the heterogeneity of possible climate change through Europe and the impacts this may imply, European wide expertise from both climate and impacts modelling groups , as well as from within social and political sciences, is required. This will ensure a comprehensive utilisation of the entire set of climate change simulations takes place. A co-ordinated effort within one common 'end-to-end' project will enable an unprecedented quantification of the uncertainties associated with impacts of future climate changes for Europe. In demonstrating the feasibility of such a combined effort, a new standard for interdisciplinary work throughout Europe will be set .
