Abstract

The influence of climate change on urban heat island intensity is analyzed for the city of Karlsruhe, southwestern Germany. First, its present diurnal and seasonal as well as spatial modes of variability are characterized by means of different meteorological observation datasets. One focus is on temperature differences during heat events. Second, high-resolution regional climate model data allow for projecting the future development of the urban heat island.

Abstract

International cooperation on greenhouse gas emission reductions is needed to avoid dangerous climate change. This work analyses the stability of global cooperation on climate change using cooperative game theory. Numerical and theoretical models are applied to evaluate the impact of several real-world properties. It is shown that the introduction of these properties into the game-theoretical model substantially affects the results and can make global climate cooperation unstable.

Abstract

A major source of uncertainty in regional climate model simulations arises from the convection parameterisation. Increasing spatial resolution to the so-called convection-permitting scale allows switching off most of the convective parameterisations. Several studies prove the benefits of this spatial scale, but none of them is based on climatological time-scale (i.e. 30 years) as this research.
