Doctoral Programme Climate Change – Uncertainties, Thresholds and Coping Strategies
Anthropogenic climate change has emerged as one of the main areas of concern in the 21st century. Strategies to deal with climate change and its possible consequences are imbued with uncertainty. The doctoral programme (DP) attempts to reach a better understanding of climate change uncertainties and, while doing so, to develop criteria for thresholds, namely critical points where a small change in a system suffices to induce a qualitative change in the system or in different systems. These considerations will be connected with the development and evaluation of possible strategies to cope with climate change.
