The CSP Division contributes to the development of the CMCC climate and earth system models, and uses them to explore and improve our understanding of the mechanisms underpinning climate variability, climate predictability and climate change, by means of numerical simulations. In collaboration with the ODA Division, CSP produces climate change scenarios, contributing to the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP)’s Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) project, to inform the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessments and in support of emerging climate service activities. Furthermore, CSP produces operational climate forecasts from seasonal to multi-annual time scales.

Research Unit Leader
This unit is devoted to the understanding of the mechanisms underpinning climate predictability at seasonal-to-multi annual time scales. It produces operational seasonal forecasts that are provided to other CMCC divisions and in support of emerging climate services.
