Climatology Group

Research Projects

The climatology group aims to document and comprehend variations in the climate system. Its research spans a range of spatial and temporal scales, with a focus on global weather and climate during the past 100-400 years. Topics range from the collection of observations, quality assurance and homogenisation, climate reconstruction and data assimilation, climate modelling, and the analysis of large-scale climate variability and of extreme weather events.
