General information and objectives

Main focus:
  • To maintain, improve, and make available to the Center’s community a hierarchy of state-of-the-art climate and climate-related models. In particular, the Center seeks to refi ne and enhance a global and a regional climate model as well as the associated modules for, e.g., aerosol, (biogeo)chemistry, ocean, land surface, and clouds.
  • To utilize climate models by conducting comprehensive simulations and diagnostics extending over a wide range of temporal and spatial scales.
  • To exploit and disseminate key national and international data sets by providing a repository for them and by developing analysis and data management tools. A special emphasis will be given to the provision of future climate scenarios at scales relevant for Switzerland.
  • To prepare for and exploit the next generation of high-performance computers, and thereby continue to contribute at the highest level to climate system science.
  • To foster the collaboration between research groups by facilitating scientific discussions and the preparation of joint proposals and to learn from environmental stakeholders who will exploit the Center’s services.

    The Center combines the climate modeling and data analysis expertise of ETH Zurich, MeteoSwiss, Empa, and Agroscope Tänikon (ART).
