Saving the sea, Prof. Nadia Pinardi: “climate change will continue to affect marine ecosystems for decades”

On Sky Tg24, Prof. Nadia Pinardi tells about climate change impacts on the ocean. A trend caused primarily by human activities that we will continue to experience for years […]

How to limit global warming to 1.5°C?

A new study published on Nature Climate Change and co-authored by CMCC researchers J. Emmerling, L. Drouet, and M. Tavoni assesses the feasibility of the 1.5°C threshold under different socioeconomic conditions […]

Agriculture at risk in Italy: the potential impacts of climate change

What are the implications of warming on agricultural productivity? A focus on Italian agriculture in a new study recently published on European Review of Agricultural Economics highlighting that farm net revenues are very sensitive to seasonal changes in temperature and precipitation while suggesting increasingly harmful effects under more severe climate scenarios […]

Italy 2050, the climate that lies ahead

How much precipitation in the coming decades? How often? What consequences in terms of drought periods and water availability? CMCC researcher Paola Mercogliano illustrates to Ansa the results of CMCC models: we might start to adapt to what it’s currently happening to be ready to address future challenges and realities […]

Italian research gets stronger: Politecnico di Milano joins CMCC Foundation, Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change

A new collaboration to investigate and model our climate system and its interactions with society and the environment. Politecnico participation will be aimed at developing scenarios, models and increasingly accurate analyses in many of the different fields of climate science while representing an important step forward to produce scientific knowledge and guarantee reliable, rigorous, and timely scientific results […]

Geo-hydrological hazards: the case study of the Amalfi coast

Two studies by CMCC researchers G. Rianna, L. Comegna, P. Mercogliano and L. Picarelli from REMHI Division explores the effect of climate change on future variations in shallow landslide hazards for defining reliable adaptation measures […]

Alpine region: a spread of wine-growing areas to the mountain quantified

In a warming climate viticulture moves to cooler areas by going to higher altitudes into the mountains. Simulations and analyses of bio-climatic indices to assess climate-driven changes in the viticultural areas of Trentino Region. A new study by CMCC Foundation researchers A.L. Zollo and P. Mercogliano […]

Extreme events, changes in precipitation and temperature. A new study on Po river basin

How the climate in Po river basin will change in the next decades. Changes in precipitation and temperature, with the frequency of extreme events and a reduction of water availability in summer expected to increase. A study by P. Mercogliano and S. Castellari that can be applied to Italian river basins to prevent the risk of water crisis, to promote hydraulic security and mitigate the potential impacts of future droughts to energy and agriculture sectors […]

OrientGate: the Data Platform is online

A tool for scientists, experts and policymakers. Visit the project website and explore its main contents and functionalities with a new video tutorial […]

On the internal variability of simulated daily precipitation

A method to capture the internal precipitation variability. A simulation in a stationary climate with the CMCC-CM coupled general circulation model. A new study on Journal of Climate […]

Regional climate modeling over China with COSMO-CLM: performance assessment and climate projections

An assessment of the capabilities of COSMO-CLM to describe the climate of China in the recent past. Climate projections, under the new IPCC RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 emission scenarios, show a significant warming expected in China over the 21st century, while precipitation changes are expected only on a regional scale. A study on Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres […]

Value of OrientGate climate scenarios recognised by Adriatic Ionian Cooperation Programme

The Adriatic Ionian Cooperation (AIO) Programme 2014–2020 involves 31 regions in four EU countries and four candidate countries. Its draft strategy, published on July 2, 2014, mentions the OrientGate project’s climate change impact scenarios as a valuable resource for the programme […]
