Palaeoclimate and Climate Dynamics (S. Mutz)
The Palaeoclimate and Climate Dynamics junior research group investigates synoptic scale atmospheric dynamics at different times in Earth's history, and models Earth surface responses to climate change for the past, present and future. We employ statistical tools and machine learning techniques in combination with sophisticated global climate models, high performance computers and integration of climate proxy compilations. The advances made in gaining a more holistic understanding of the climate system and its evolution through time allow us to bridge the gap to other geo-science disciplines, and offer new predictions that complement those in the field of climate impact research. Investigated regions include Central Asia, the Alps, the Andes, Scandinavia and Himalaya-Tibet.
