MERGE involves Lund University, University of Gothenburg, Rossby Centre/SMHI, Linneaus University, Chalmers University of Technology and Royal Institute of Technology.

Lund University

University of Gothenburg

  • Department of Earth Science contributes with work on downscaling of climate model results to local scale, with focus on extreme precipitation and temperature events. RCG works also with dendrochronology.
  • Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology (Atmospheric Science) supports model development by laboratory-based experimental studies, aiming at improved model descriptions of key aerosol and cloud processes, such as SOA formation via BVOC oxidation, and SOA aging and associated changes in chemical and physical properties.
  • Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences (BioEnv) works with landscape variation in ozone and ozone exposure in relation to local climate and ozone deposition, and studies ecophysiological aspects of vegetation interaction with the atmosphere, including the responses and long-term acclimation to climate, elevated CO2 and elevated O3 concentrations.


  • Rossby Centre works in MERGE on research and climate model development.

Chalmers University of Technology

  • Department of Earth and Space Science focuses in MERGE on aerosol and in the context relevant atmospheric chemistry modelling (tropospheric ozone), using the EMEP model as a stepping stone to introducing new parameterizations in regional and over time global climate models. The second focus is on methods to collect data about forest biomass and changes in the forest cover using radar remote sensing, for use in evaluation of ecosystem descriptions in climate models.
