Climate Fact Sheet for all European Open-Air Laboratories

The Climate Fact Sheet provides brief and concise information on possible future climate developments for all European Open-Air Laboratories in the 21st century. They are based on the results of 51 regional climate model simulations, which are based on the Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs). RCP8.5 represents a worst case scenario, RCP4.5 a medium mitigation scenario, and RCP2.6 a stringent mitigation scenario. 18 different indices for climate change are presented, which are relevant for various societal sectors. They are supplemented by an expert judgement of the reliability of the shown changes. The relationship to the climate of the near past is illustrated by some of the key figures calculated from observation data for all European Open-Air Laboratories.
