Research Focus of the Institute:

The Center for Climate Systems Modeling is a research center based at ETH Zurich. It is a joint initiative between ETH Zurich, MeteoSwiss, Empa, and Agroscope Reckenholz-Tänikon (ART), with the main objective to improve the understanding of the Earth’s climate system, and our capability to predict weather and climate. C2SM was founded in November 2008 and has been operational since March 2009.

Vision & Objectives
The Center for Climate Systems Modeling (C2SM) has been established to address the scientifically challenging and socially relevant issue of climate change. While there is a more widespread acceptance that anthropogenic activities are significantly influencing the Earth’s climate, many uncertainties remain in our understanding of the complex processes involved in the climate system, including its atmospheric, oceanic, terrestrial, biospheric and cryospheric sub-components.

The overarching goal of C2SM is to foster and coordinate the development and application of climate models operating at various scales to improve our capability to understand and predict the Earth’s climate, including its weather systems, chemical composition and hydrological cycle.

The main objectives of the Center are to develop the tools and methods necessary to bridge the gap between the different spatio-temporal scales and between the different (atmospheric, hydrological, oceanographic and terrestrial) components of the climate system. In turn, this will increase our understanding and sharpen our predictive capability of climate variations and change on time scales from days to millennia.
