The initiative Klimaszenarien.AT unites the Austrian climate research to develop the new generation of Austrian Climate Scenarios in a scientifically robust as well as user-oriented way.

Data for researchers

The Klimaszenarien.AT initiative drives the development of the new Austrian reference climate scenarios ÖKS26+ under the umbrella of the CCCA. Find out more about the community process, the possibilities of your active participation as well as the planned results and innovations of the ÖKS26 data sets that are to be published by 2026.

ÖKS 15 – the status quo of climate scenarios

The current Austrian climate scenarios date from the year 2015 (ÖKS15) and are based on Euro Cordex data sets. Together with the analyzes derived from them, the ÖKS15 provide an overview of the effects of climate change in Austria and provide a basis for further detailed studies that are available to the scientific community free of charge.

Research projects

Various research projects at Austrian research institutions deal with modelling and improvement of Austrian climate scenarios. Topics that are currently being analyzed include the integration of user needs into the development of climate services, the handling of high-resolution data in the Alpine region, the topic of data usability as well as the evaluation and adaptation of global and regional climate models. Research projects form an integral part of the Klimaszenarien.AT initiative. Read more…

Stakeholder dialogue and scientific quality

With the broad communication and preparation of the ÖKS26+, various stakeholder and target groups should be addressed and be able to benefit from the research results. The broad uptake and usage of results will be facilitated by intensive exchange formats between practice and science as well as by means of professional graphic and technical implementation of the results. The Stakeholder Advisory Board serves to incorporate user needs into the development of the new scenarios. The Scientific Advisory Board helps to ensure quality standards and to connect to the international research community. Read more…
