Making multi-decadal climate change predictions
Climate change is all around us – from longer periods of drought to an increase in the number of tropical storms, and from the loss of sea ice to more intense heat waves. Scientists predict global climate is projected to change over this century, but there is a need for improved information about the extent of the change beyond the next few decades. The EU-funded CONSTRAIN project aims to fill climate science and related policy-making knowledge gaps through a better understanding of how natural and human factors affect multi-decadal regional climate change. It will help scientists make climate projections for the next 20-50 years. The project’s findings will benefit the EU’s adaptation and mitigation strategy.
