Training the new generation of scientists to address Climate Change issues in Africa: Insights from the Marrakech-Benguerir Climate Change, Projections and Services Summer School

Training the new generation of scientists to address Climate Change issues in Africa: Insights from the Marrakech-Benguerir Climate Change, Projections and Services Summer School

In the ever-evolving landscape of climate change, the Université Mohammed VI Polytechnique (Buengerir, Marocco) and Institut Pierre Simon Laplace (Paris,France) Summer School has emerged as a beacon of knowledge, equipping participants with the tools to comprehend, navigate, and mitigate the impacts of a changing climate. The inaugural edition of the summer school focused on “climate change, ...[Read More]

Nonlinear Processes in Earth System Dynamics

Nonlinear Processes in Earth System Dynamics

Earth System Dynamics (ESD) is an open-access EGU journal focussing on an interdisciplinary view of the functioning of the Earth system and global change. Due its broad focus, ESD receives submissions of relevance to several different EGU divisions. Here, I would like to highlight five thought-provoking ESD papers that cover topics spanning environmental governance, extreme events, palaeo-climates ...[Read More]

ECS SpotLight: The link between European warm-temperature extremes and atmospheric persistence

ECS SpotLight: The link between European warm-temperature extremes and atmospheric persistence

Persistent atmospheric circulation patterns are not a necessary requirement for warm temperature extremes in Europe. This key finding from a recent study led by Emma Holmberg challenges a more traditional meteorological view of persistence, which typically considers summertime heatwaves, especially in northern regions of Europe, to be synonymous with persistent atmospheric flow patterns. Furthermo ...[Read More]

How Climate Change fuels intense Thunderstorms in Italy

How Climate Change fuels intense Thunderstorms in Italy

In the blistering heat of July 2023, a series of violent thunderstorms struck the serene landscapes of northern Italy, leaving behind a trail of devastation, despair, and grief. Unleashing their fury upon the unsuspecting region, these tempestuous storms unleashed torrential rains, hailstones the size of tennis balls, and ferocious winds exceeding 150 km/h. Amidst the chaos and destruction, homes ...[Read More]
