IMPROVing prediction and adaptation strategies for climate Extremes affecting developing countries (IMPROVE)

Project: Research

Project Details


IMPROVE aims to revolutionise our understanding and prediction of climate extremes and associated impacts on society by leveraging cutting-edge technologies and methodologies. Central to this endeavour is the integration of Earth observations via the EarthCARE satellite (which carries the ATLID (Atmospheric Lidar) and CPR (Cloud Profiling Radar)) with climate modelling and machine learning techniques. The EarthCARE satellite provides height-resolved information on the distribution of aerosol pollution and clouds and thus captures intricate atmospheric dynamics that are crucial for studying climate extremes and their impacts. By combining this observational data with state-of-the-art climate models, we will a) simulate and analyse complex interactions that are driving atmospheric phenomena and forest fire events, and b) thus enhance predictive capabilities of future climate.
