Job description

Please find detailed information on our website, Theme A: Sensitivity and Variability in the Climate System

The project will focus on climate variability from eddy to basin scales and its changes in a warm-ing world. It will quantify the full spectrum of variability for present day situations, will compare it with the state of our knowledge resulting from observations, and will then study how this variability is changing in climate change scenarios under week and strong climate forcing. The project will use output from the new ICON-based global coupled high-resolution Earth System Model MPI-ESM-2. Output will be analyzed from historical runs as well as from climate-change
scenarios. The associated changes in the representation of climate modes and eddy variability will be investigated. Consequences of the findings for climate predictability and climate predic-tions will be analyzed.
