The Adaptation Support Tool – Getting started
How is the European climate changing?
The extent to which the climate will change depends on the development of society and the economy in coming years. These changes are captured in different climate and socio-economic scenarios. Socio-economic scenarios provide plausible descriptions of possible future states of the world based on the choices society makes. The greenhouse gas emissions scenarios associated with these various socio-economic scenarios are used by global climate models to provide projections of future climate change at the global scale. These projections can be used to calculate more detailed climate projections for Europe.
