Research projects as integrative part of Klimaszenarien.AT

Various research projects at Austrian research institutions deal with the development and improvement of climate scenarios and the evaluation and adaptation of global and regional climate models. The minimization of uncertainties in both global and regional climate models is part of many research strategies. Some of these projects run within the framework of national and international interdisciplinary consortia, funded by the ACRP – Austrian Climate Research Program of the Climate and Energy Fund.

In the next generation of Austrian climate scenarios, special emphasis is placed on the topography of Austria and the corresponding challenges of climate models in mountainous regions. The new data should also be more usable for urban areas.

The aim of Klimaszenarien.AT is to synthesize these project results and to generate climate scenarios for the years 2026+ that are as user-oriented as well as scientifically sound. In this way, the communication and application of project results and data should also be promoted beyond the project period in order to be able to better answer specific questions from different user groups.
