MERGE

MERGE research questions

  • How sensitive is the global climate system to emissions and land use change?
  • How does Earth System feedback modify the global, regional and local climate response?
  • Can remaining uncertainties on climate sensitivity be further reduced?

MERGE facts

  • MERGE is a strategic research environment coordinated by Lund University and was launched in 2010
  • In 2017, MERGE involved more than 120 researchers, including senior scientists, young scientists and other contributing staff.
  • The MERGE team includes five universities as well as the Swedish Metorological and Hydrological Institute
  • The main research focus is regional and global climate/Earth System models, understanding key processes
    and feedback of climate/Earth System’s  with focus on climate-vegetation, improved global and regional climate change
    projections and scenarios as well as risks of extreme events
