First 2000-Year-Long Temperature Reconstruction for Individual Continents in “Nature”

A new study carried out by researchers at the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research, University of Bern, demonstrates that limiting global warming might not be enough to stop the rising sea levels, ocean acidification and the loss of production in agriculture. The current accepted climate goal expressed as an increase in two degrees is seemingly far from being realistic to protect the climate system from interferences by human activities.

The study was based on the ” Bern3D-LPJ” Earth System Model developed at the University of Bern, able to simulate a very large number of processes and their interactions.

The Oeschger Centre for Climate Research is the centre of excellence for climate research of the University of Bern. It focuses on interdisciplinary research in the fields of natural, human and social sciences, as well as economics and law.
