Compound events (CEs) caused by a combination of multiple drivers often result in more severe socio-economic and ecological impacts than conventional events. One example for CEs with the potential to cause considerable negative impacts on crop yields and human health is the cooccurrence of hot and dry conditions. The student will work with climate model output from Earth System Models participating in the sixth round of the CMIP6 and assess what impact a gradual increase followed by a decrease in atmospheric carbon dioxide has on the occurrence frequency of hot and dry CEs.

In this project the student will work with model output from Earth System Models participating in the sixth round of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) to assess how a gradual increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide impacts carbon uptake and storage in the global ocean.
Marchus Jochum (University of Copenhagen). The future of ocean modelling. We can only trust current Earth System Models with future projections if they are able to reproduce past events. I will use model realisations of glacial inception and Dangaard-Oeschger events to illustrate what aspects of current ESMs are trustworthy and which ones need more work. Two major areas of future developments will emerge: marine biogeochemistry and software engineering. The case will be made that we need new approaches to numerical... View Article
