At this conference following topics will be addressed:

  • Session 1: Regional climate system modelling
  • Session 2: Sea level changes from global to regional and local scales
  • Session 3: Arctic Change
  • Session 4: The land surface in the climate system
  • Session 5: Atmospheric composition and climate: Interactions from global to regional scale
  • Session 6: Extreme meteorological events and their impacts in a changing climate
  • Session 7: Integrated strategies for climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • Session 8: Rapid climate change in the past – mechanisms, processes and regional patterns

The conference will consist of plenary meetings, parallel sessions and poster sessions. It is followed by a public engagement day on 'Regional climate change – causes and effects' on the 9th of October 2014 focusing on the dialogue between scientists and decision makers (Please note: this event will be in German to include local stakeholders!).
