ESM2025 is a European research project on Earth system numerical modelling focusing on the representation of interactions and couplings between Earth system model (ESM) components. It aims to improve key climate processes and better represent the full Earth system response to anthropogenic emissions and land-use change. ESM2025 plans to provide relevant climate simulations for the development of ambitious and realistic mitigation and adaptation strategies in line with the Paris Agreement, by improving the physical coherence of climate and mitigation processes in ESMs and integrated assessment models. Project results are expected to support international climate assessment reports, climate change mitigation policy, climate change adaptation and local and national decision-making.
