I. Domain of Climate Analysis and Modelling

The department’s scientific focus covers a wide range of topics related to research on climate and its behaviour. It deals with issues related to analyses of past and current climate and climate modelling, including extreme phenomena and long-term trends. The department also uses global and regional climate models for modelling the future situation as well as for reconstructing past climate conditions. Another important subject area addressed within the department is quantification of climate change impacts on crop production and the search for suitable strategies to minimize their negative consequences.

The domain’s main objectives are as follow:

a) development of methodology for modelling climate extremes and trends of climatic elements using historical climate characteristics and quantification of relationships between atmospheric circulation and surface climate elements;

b) development and operation of a regional climate model featuring advanced generations of physical parameterizations and able to operate at very high spatial resolution as well as the creation of tools for constructing local probabilistic climate change scenarios, including to construct the climate change scenarios themselves; and

c) preparation of a regional spatial study on GCC impacts on crop yields using growth models and preparation of propositions for adaptation measures while emphasizing the effects of drought, diseases and pests.
