Climate and Climate Change Impact Research

  • Forschung_EMA_ Klimaforschung.jpg

Short Description

The scientists involved in the Campus Profile Area of “Climate and Climate Change Impact Research” are investigating processes in the climate system and mitigation and adaptation strategies in the course of climate change. Among other things, they are conducting research on how global warming, changes in the hydrological cycle (for instance through heavy precipitation) and increased concentrations of greenhouse gases impact plants, soils, micro-organisms, the use of biomass energy, animals, the economy and society. They are exploring how the functionality of our ecosystems influence and change harvests and the quality of our food as a result of man-made climate change and land use modifications. The researchers are developing strategies to reduce and adapt to the greenhouse effect (mitigation). For example, they are working on long-term fixation of carbon in the soil, the improved use of water and nutrients, as well as on improving sewage systems and road surfaces adapted to heavy precipitation. Further, climate proxy information and climate models are used to study and understand past climate and environmental changes at a regional and continental scale and potential influences on societies, for example in terms of potable water supply. Ultimately, research will contribute to a better understanding of past, present and future weather and climate extremes, including heat waves, heavy precipitation and droughts, and their potential impacts on society and economy. In addition, the researchers of the Profile Area also integrate climate and climate change impact research in their teaching and thus function as multipliers for the research area in study courses of many disciplines, ranging from geography to environment, hygiene and safety engineering.
