Working Group 4 - Integration Environment and Impacts

This working group focuses on providing climate data for impacts research. Tasks can be, for example, standardizing and documenting climate model output or climate observations for easier use. We also provide support in how to use this kind of data as a regular support.

Group Members

  • Ruth Lorenz


  • Meeting Working group day March 2021
  • Meeting Working group day June 2021
  • Meeting about synergies and needs, 13th Septemeber 2021
