Climate Services Through Knowledge Co-Production

The CLIMAX project is an inter- and trans-disciplinary framework based on a European-South American research cooperation. The goal of CLIMAX is to better understand the combined role of remote and local drivers on South America climate variability. TUM's part at this project is to investigate impacts on the occurrence and intensity of extreme events (such as floods in Argentina and droughts in Brasilia) caused by this climate variability. Therefore we are using process based models to quantify precipitation changes in the south eastern South America.

CLIMAX is funded by the Belmont-Forum and the BMBF.
