Including volcanic forcing in the MiKlip prediction system has increased the prediction skill for global surface temperature (Timmreck et al., 2016). However, the regional impacts of volcanic forcing in particular on Northern Hemisphere (NH) winter climate which are controlled largely by dynamical changes are neither fully understood nor well represented in the current prediction system. ALARM-II will therefore explore and improve the representation of the climate response to aerosol perturbations caused by volcanic eruptions in the MiKlip prediction system, in order to prepare for future events and be able to forecast their effects immediately after a potential future eruption.
ALARM II consists of three workpackages and is coordinated by Dr. Claudia Timmreck (MPI-M). Dr. Hauke Schmidt (MPI-M) and Prof. Dr. Kirstin Krüger (UiO), as an external partner, contribute to the project.
