Climate-Carbon Interactions in the Current Century

Project description

New more accurate models of how carbon affects climate change

Climate change feedback is important for understanding global warming because feedback processes may amplify or diminish the effect of climate forcing. It therefore plays an important part in determining climate sensitivity and future climate state. The EU-funded CCiCC project aims to reduce uncertainty in the quantitative understanding of carbon-climate interactions and feedbacks. Scientists will quantify key processes regulating the coupled carbon-climate system, and use observational constraints to provide long-term projections of the climate in response to anthropogenic emissions. The project will also deliver policy recommendations on carbon dioxide emission pathways. CCiCC analyses and data will help experts better assess how carbon dioxide emissions affect climate change.
