Climate factsheets

Below, you can explore some fact sheets covering general topics relevant for climate studies, in PRIMAVERA and beyond.

How do Climate Models work?

Climate models are mathematical representations
of the climate system, its components and their


Does high-resolution global modelling matter?

A new generation of high-resolution, global climate models (GCMs) is developed and used within the PRIMAVERA project. They feature improved model physics and representation of small scale processes.


Quality of climate models

Models are always a simplification of reality and, therefore, they will never represent reality exactly.
