On occasion of the Science Year 2016*2017 Seas and Oceans, Prof Jochem Marotzke explains what effects the ocean has on climate and weather and how it changes. Interview
Scientists from Max Planck Society and Harvard University, including Prof Jochem Marotzke from Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, use a climate game and a game theory model to show that people prefer representatives who adopt an extortionate strategy in negotiations.
Interview Radio Q, Campusradio Uni Münster, with Prof Jochem Marotzke
Might the Arctic be free of ice soon? Dr. Dirk Notz studies the changes in arctic sea ice and explains coherences. Interview
Dr Wolfgang Müller from MPI-M explains the pacific decadal oscillation. Interview
Dr Florian Rauser from MPI-M talks about a challenge in climate modelling: a resolution of 100 meters. Interview
How long does it take for CO2 to be reduced? Prof Martin Claussen and Prof Victor Brovkin take a look into the future. Interview
What role do clouds play in the climate system? Radio Ecoshock interviewed Bjorn Stevens, director at MPI-M about his paper “Rethinking the Lower Bound on Aerosol Radiative Forcing”. Interview (in English)
The radio station DRadio Wissen asked what would happen to climate if mankind would vanish from Earth immediately. Dr. Dirk Notz from MPI-M illustrates different scenarios. Interview
Arctic sea ice is melting while Antarctic sea ice is incresing over the last decades. Dr. Dirk Notz (MPI-M) explains how that could happen. Interview
Will the Arctic be ice-free during the summer by the end of the century? Which influence does the Arctic have on the climate? Dr. Dirk Notz from MPI-M explains correlations. Interview
Scientists at MPI-M demonstrate that ocean acidification may amplify global warming through the biogenic production of the marine sulfur component dimethylsulphide (DMS). Lead author Dr. Katharina Six explains the results.
Was climate change to blame for the flood that occured in Germany in June 2013? Dr. Stefan Hagemann from MPI-M provides answers in an interview "Hochwasser durch den Klimawandel?". Interview
Since approx. 15 years the global mean temperature seems to be stagnating despite increasing CO2-concentrations. MPI-M Director Prof. Dr. Jochem Marotzke explains coherences. Interview
Could the Sahara become green again? How do changes in Earth´s orbit and climate change influence the area? The research group of MPI-M Director Prof. Dr. Claußen addresses these questions. Interview
