Climate Modeling

Though we may not have a crystal ball, we can see the future. Across Germany, scientists and entrepreneurs are using climate models and simulations to predict the longterm human impacts on our earth. 

In our May newsletter, we check out a startup that can quantify your climate impact in exact degrees Celsius and feature research projects modeling the future of the atmosphere and vegetation.  In an interview we chat with Dr. Daniela Jacob, Director of the Climate Service Center Germany, about how climate models work, how accurate they are and what urgent messages they have for us. In a special section we look into Germany's innovative approaches to SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing.

Germany Moves Ahead with Antibody Testing
Across Germany and many parts of the U.S., life is slowly starting to resume, albeit in new ways. But along with the new normal comes yet another largely uncharted territory: antibody testing. Keep reading.

Predicting the Future
Director of the Climate Service Center Germany, Dr. Daniela Jacob, is an expert in regional climate modeling. In an interview, we talk model accuracy, doubting science and projections for megacities.  

Biosphere Modeling to Feed the World

Using an innovative biosphere model, researchers at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) have determined that with agricultural reforms the earth can feed 10 billion people.  Read on.

Building the Atmosphere

Scientists at the Juelich Institute of Energy and Climate Research are investigating how climate change and its stresses affect the intermingling of biological and man-made gases in the atmosphere. To the story.
