The corona crisis - might it be good for the climate? For scientists like the Belgian climate expert Guy Brasseur the lockdown period is interesting as it allows an insight into a low-emission future. Together with his colleagues of the Max-Planck-Institut for Meteorologie in Hamburg Brasseur has studied Chinese air quality data. Interview

The glaciers in the high mountains of Central Asia are among the largest ice-covered areas of the world and are therefore also called "the third pole". Climate change is causing the ice to melt. What kind of effects that might have explains Dr. Stefan Hagemann in an interview with NDR Logo. Interview

 

 

Dr. Thorsten Mauritsen investigated how much climate would still be warming if humanity stopped greenhouse gas emissions from now on. Interview

 

 

 

 

 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.

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.

Might the Arctic be free of ice soon? Dr. Dirk Notz studies the changes in arctic sea ice and explains coherences. Opens external link in current windowInterview

 

 

 

Dr Florian Rauser from MPI-M talks about a challenge in climate modelling: a resolution of 100 meters. Opens external link in current windowInterview

How long does it take for CO2 to be reduced? Prof Martin Claussen and Prof Victor Brovkin take a look into the future. Opens external link in current windowInterview

 

 

 

 

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”. Opens external link in current windowInterview (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. Opens external link in current windowInterview

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. Opens external link in current windowInterview

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.

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. Opens external link in current windowInterview

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. Opens external link in current windowInterview
