Climate Changes:

Regional Modeling, data analysis and uncertainties

Director: Prof. J. Hesselbjerg Christensen

27-31 August 2018, L’Aquila, Italy



Icona1The purpose of the summer school is to illustrate the progress that has been made in the  scientific ability to generate detailed climate projections at the regional scale. The main objectives of the school are thus to provide students with an insight into climate changes and impacts, as well as to associated uncertainties and their communication. Assessments on the most recent techniques for climate data analysis, for regional climate modeling techniques, for climate impact on hydrology and for quality assessment and validation of the observations will be provided.

Icona6The theoretical lectures will be complemented by practical sessions on real environmental data analysis, and there will be ample opportunity to exchange ideas and questions among the students and the lecturers.


  • Global Change: overview of the climate system
  • Climate change impacts: analysis of the impacts at global and regional scale
  • Climate Change uncertainties: and their communication overview of the  uncertainties and role of communication
  • Regional Climate Modeling: RCM techniques
  • Climate impact on hydrology: impacts of the climate changes on hydrology
