Synthesis Area S: Climate models as metrics

Our scientists in Area S will implement new parameterisations and numerics into two national leading coupled climate models and test their performance. Therefore, they provide a metric for the success of the whole project.

Synthesis of all areas

During the course of the project, Area S will use the results (e.g. new parameterizations or refined model set ups) of the other areas in the projects to further enhance and improve climate models.
