New dataset on climate extreme indices and heat stress indicators

The dataset provides climate extreme indices related to temperature and precipitation as well as selected heat stress indicators derived from global climate projections.

EXtremeClimTwin: Building capacity on climate extremes through cooperation

Increasing heat extremes, reduced summer precipitation and higher rainfall intensities are some of the climate change impacts facing the Western Balkans. To strengthen local researchers’ ability to understand the current and coming changes in climate extremes, CICERO researchers are involved in an EU funded capacity building project with the University of Novi Sad in Serbia.

High snow levels indicate weak power prices in the Nordics this summer

Electricity prices in the Nordic countries are likely to be unusually low this summer amid high inflows to hydropower plants, caused by a combination of a very snow-rich winter and late snowmelt.

Global warming increases rainfall most over oceans

Global warming leads to more rain – but little of the change occurs over land. An international team of researchers, led by Bjørn H. Samset at the Norwegian CICERO Center for Climate Research, used ten global climate models to study how precipitation changes when just one factor in the climate system was allowed to change at a time.

Precipitation is arguably the most direct link between the climate and human society. We depend upon existing precipitation patterns for fresh water and food production, and global infrastructure is designed to withstand current precipitation extremes.
