DLR Conference on Climate Change 2016 – Challenges for Atmospheric Research in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA)
Climate change has become one of the most important issues mankind will have to contend with in forthcoming decades. Though we are basically certain that human activity is causing global warming, the magnitude of the warming and the associated changes in the probability distributions of many climate variables are still quite uncertain. We need a better understanding of, e.g., the cloud processes and their impact on climate sensitivity.
This scientific conference aims to provide a discussion forum for international scientists, research centers and space agencies together with United Nations entities such as UNOOSA, UNFCCC, WMO and GCOS to investigate the considerable challenges in atmospheric climate research.
During the conference, invited presentations will be given by
- Prof. Dr. Guy Brasseur, NCAR, Boulder, CO, USA, and MPI for Meteorology, Hamburg, Germany
