Selected climate links
The Helmholtz Climate Initiative has its focus on the two key areas, namely “Reducing Emissions” and “Adapting to the Impacts of Climate Change”. Helmholtz scientists advance their climate research in completely new research projects. They will place greater emphasis on networking in order to systemically research climate change.
The CLIMALERT project aims at co-producing an innovative tool − web and mobile applications − to forecast weather-related impacts due to extreme climate events, namely drought and floods.
RealClimate is a commentary site on climate research written by climate scientists for the interested public, with lots of links to related topics.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a working group set up by the UN that collates research findings in order to assess the risks of global warming and to suggest avoidance strategies. The IPCC’s fourth and most recent Assessment Report (AR4) of 2007 can also be found here.
