The Climate Physics group, led by Prof. Reto Knutti, has its focus on climate modeling, uncertainty and probability of climate change and the use of observations to constrain climate feedback.




The Earth’s climate is changing as a response to anthropogenic emissions of fossil fuels, and is very likely that these changes will continue over the next decades to centuries. The projected changes from multiple numerical climate models differ significantly, because some feedbacks and processes are poorly understood or cannot be resolved in the models. Though, in order to quantify the consequences of a changing climate it is crucial to get a picture of the uncertainties associated with the expected changes.
