Open-source software to predict regional weather extremes
Climate change is causing climate and weather extremes to become more frequent all over the world. However, they are not factored in the derivation of emissions scenarios by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The integrated assessment models underlying the development of these emissions scenarios only consider changes in mean climate when evaluating options for changes in agricultural production, biofuel production, afforestation or other land use. The EU-funded MESMER-X project will address this shortcoming by developing an operational Earth System Model emulator providing climate extremes projections under different emissions and land use scenarios at a negligible computational cost. The MESMER-X emulator will be open-source and broadly available to scientists, policymakers and society.
