Climate Research

Climate impacts play an important role in planning our future. We focus on our competences - climate impacts on water resources and biodiversity, interactions between landuse and the atmosphere and adaptation research. Within the Helmholtz Climate Initiative REKLIM, the speakers for the topics "The land surface in the climate system" and "Risk analysis and risk management for integrated climate strategies" are from UFZ. Furthermore, we interact with decision makers, e.g. on the regional level in the Climate Office for Central Germany, and shape knowledge transfer.

Ongoing Projects
