DLR Conference on Climate Change 2018 – Atmospheric Research for Understanding and Mitigating Climate Change, 17–19 April 2018, Cologne, Germany

We kindly invite you to the

DLR Conference on Climate Change 2018 –
Atmospheric Research for Understanding and Mitigating Climate Change

in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA)

Understanding how variations in the Earth’s climate come about has become one of the most important issues mankind will have to deal with in forthcoming decades.

Though it is extremely likely that human activity is one of the causes of global warming, the scale of the warming and the associated changes in the probability distribution of many climate variables are still virtually undefined. It is therefore crucial that these issues are more thoroughly analyzed to help combat the negative effects that changes in climatic processes have on our planet.

The aim of the Paris Agreement is to reinforce the global response to the threats arising from climatic change by, for example, imposing a global temperature rise within this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The agreement underlines the necessity to study ways of reducing the consequences of climate change.

This scientific conference aims to bring international scientists, space agencies and interested parties together with United Nations entities such as UNOOSA, UNSPIDER, UNFCCC, WMO and GCOS and thus provide a discussion forum to elaborate on the substantial challenges faced in atmospheric climate research. By encouraging an open exchange of ideas we hope to facilitate the implementation of suitable measures to support the requirements as outlined in Paris.
