The Bert Bolin Centre for Climate Research
The Bert Bolin Centre for Climate Research, BBCC, conducts a 10-year research and research environment-building program, funded by FORMAS and VR, which brings together the climate research expertise in four departments.
We focus on five cross-disciplinary core themes; climate
variability , atmospheric and ocean circulation , boundary
conditions for circulation system modeling , biogeochemical cycles
, and small-scale processes with large-scale impacts .
Important policy decisions for sustainable development are based on climate scenarios derived through numerical climate modeling. Such models are a synthesis of our current understanding of climate-influencing processes in the various components of the climate system. Our challenge and aim is to provide improved knowledge about climate-influencing processes, over a range of time-scales and subsystems. The BBCC research program embraces natural climate processes and variability, as well as changes imposed by man´s ever-increasing impact on the climate system through emission of greenhouse gases and aerosols, and changes in land-use, vegetation and hydrology.
