  • SLANT - Sea Level projections for ANTarctica
  • STACEE - STability of Atmospheric Circulation patterns and its relation to Extreme Events
  • SESL - Semi-Empirical Sea Level
  • UFOPlan


The flagship AnthrOIA investigates the climate evolution of the recent past and the future with special regard to changes affecting society. To this end the focus lies on extreme events, sea level rise and potential climate tipping points. On a global scale the tipping elements of the climate system such as the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheets, the Atlantic thermohaline circulation and monsoon rainfall are of particular importance.
