Climate models are becoming a widespread tool to simulate the behavior of the climate system over longer time periods. Climate modelling contributes to the understanding of the complex interaction processes in the earth system und provides scenarios for future climate conditions. The results of climate modelling form the basis for recommendations and decisions on how to prepare for and how to adapt to climate change. This session will be devoted to different aspects of climate modelling, including:
• the development and refinement of global and regional climate models,
• numerical aspects of climate models,
• ensemble climate modelling,
• the representation of physical earth system processes in climate models,
• the verification and intercomparison of climate model results,
• data treatment and visualization of climate model results.
