 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'There is a pressing need to improve our understanding of climate processes and their impacts in order to develop appropriate adaptation and mitigation measures. Increasing concentrations of anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs) are known to be causing changes in global climate patterns, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. However, our ability to predict future climatic states is still limited for a variety of reasons. Key among these is our understanding of the coupled behaviour of the components of the Earth system that contribute to the evolution of GHG concentrations, climate responses, and the impacts of environmental change. Earth System Models (ESMs) have emerged as our most important tool with which to test our understanding and predict the coupled behaviour of the many interacting components. However, a variety of recent observations indicate that changes are occurring at faster rates than predicted, suggesting that we are underestimating the strength of feedbacks in the Earth system. We propose a research training programme that will have as its scientific focus the evaluation, improvement, and application of a range of different ESMs. We will consider all the important anthropogenic greenhouse gases and will undertake a range of projects, broadly classed into data and model benchmarking, marine processes, terrestrial processes, high latitude feedbacks, and coupled modelling. Science projects by individual fellows will enhance links between network partners as well as considerably improve our understanding of Earth system feedbacks. A comprehensive, coordinated range of training events will be provided. We will foster the next generation of Earth system scientists and reduce uncertainties in future Earth system behaviour, thereby greatly improving the quality of knowledge available to policy makers and significantly strengthening European science.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

A recent training programme for young researchers has yielded several interesting results in the field of climate change modelling.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Earth System Models (ESMs) have been used for decades as a tool to better understand climate change. These models are constantly refined and improved as our knowledge improves on how various environmental phenomena interact.

The EU has funded a research training programme called 'Anticipating climate change and biospheric feedbacks within the Earth system to 2200' (http://www.greencycles.org/ (GREENCYCLESII)) to provide ESM skills to a new generation of climate researchers. The programme exposed 23 early-stage researchers and 7 experienced researchers to a wide range of skills and experiences. In total, GREENCYCLESII ran eight training workshops and four mini-conferences over three years.

Project funding of research into ESM resulted in a number of publications in high-profile journals such as Nature and Quaternary Science Reviews.

Key research outcomes include developing several new data sets for ESMs, and a comprehensive review of currently available data. Researchers also evaluated the latest carbon cycle simulations and improved the modelling of thawing permafrost.

GREENCYCLESII has thus advanced ESMs and climate change modelling, and provided 30 young researchers with skills and experience to further their careers.
