CRES: Centre for regional change in the Earth system

Projections of future climate change exist, but lack characterisation and integration of uncertainties as well as in regional details. To counteract climate change and its impacts, there is an urgent need for better quantification of how human activities interact with natural processes, affect the climate and vice versa. CRES will establish a common multidisciplinary research platform for climate change targeted specifically at Danish expertise in this area. CRES will create new synergies and minimize overlap between different ongoing and planned research activities in the field and adjacent fields of research by reaching out beyond its core group. It will establish a coordinated effort of high relevance to societal preparedness for climate change and Denmark’s standing in international climate change research.
