The Department of Applied Climatology and Climate Modelling offers consulting services and expertise in climate forecasting, diagnosis of climatic problems, and the development of methods to avert potential climate-related ecological problems.

Capabilities:

  • Detailed analyses of current climate conditions on local, regional, and national scales, particularly in regions with complex geographical features (glaciers, lakes, alternating vegetation types etc.);
  • Climate forecasting on a local, regional, national, and global scale under current development trends;
  • Predicting climatic responses to:
    • increases in greenhouse gas levels;
    • changes of the ocean levels;
    • volcanic activity;
    • solar activity;
    • changing vegetation;
    • agricultural activity and lumbering;
    • other anthropogenic activities; and
  • Determining the influence of natural climatic changes on vegetation, ocean levels, precipitation levels, and other environmental factors.
