Website on climate impacts in Germany starts in pilot phase

12/01/12 - For the first time, the new website “KlimafolgenOnline” presents information on regional impacts of climate change all over Germany for local decision makers. The project from the Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and WetterOnline is starting its pilot phase and is now open to interested users. Information is provided for experts from forestry to building with resolutions as fine as 10x10 kilometers. The website is also presented at the current climate summit COP18 in Doha.
Website on climate impacts in Germany starts in pilot phase

The website "KlimafolgenOnline" is now open to interested users.

"KlimafolgenOnline” does not show forecasts but scenarios: information on a possible future if climate change is not mitigated. Responding to the present development of greenhouse gas emissions and temperatures, the projections are based on a warming of 3.6 to 4.1 degrees Celsius until 2100 in Germany. Data for several regional climate impact models was generated with the computer simulation STARS.

During its pilot phase, “KlimafolgenOnline” is to be improved and expanded in collaboration with its users until the end of 2013. The website was first presented in Germany on a Conference on Climate Impacts at Humboldt-University in September in Berlin.
