From fundamental research and education to cutting-edge development and service, we are a solid, reliable partner to all those seeking to understand, nurture and protect the society and the environment
We encompass Climate in its broadest sense, across an interdisciplinary interface among frontier natural, social and technical sciences, whilst preserving an extraordinarily strong scientific and methodological core in climate system science, grounded on world-class mathematical physics, geophysical sciences and information technologies, classical and quantum.
Academic and Scientific Excellence
We provide multilevel education and outreach ranging from the very basics in support of public and private education institutions, to higher-education at university programs including graduate and doctoral schools. Ensuring profound and robust scientific understanding and literacy enables our trainees, students and professionals to command rigorous comprehensive knowledge of the manifold science underneath Climate Dynamics and Predictability.
Refocusing on the Climate Core
NORA Climate is a robust key climate node in any Earth system consortium or alliance, without the dilution under generic environmental priorities. Rather, we are a whole hearted Climate Center. We make our own destiny. So we can best serve yours.
As a prime and independent international voice in Climate, we are the reference to call when Climate is fundamentally at stake. We are not data users: we harness novel information in innovative ways. We are not model users: we design, develop and operate novel models to provide unprecedented solutions.
Predicting the ‘unpredictable’
Our models capture, predict and explain not only the traditional mean flows and variability, but the entire distribution including elusive extreme events – grounded not on the traditional models (which fail to properly capture extreme events in their full breadth) but on our groundbreaking advances in fundamental physics and complex system dynamics, which bring to the light of seamless prediction what used to be deemed unpredictable.
In doing so, we provide understanding the core fundamental mechanisms and interplays, capture early warning signs, predict the nonlinear dynamics of regimes, transitions and extremes, including those with unprecedented dynamic features elusive to the traditional state-of-the-art prediction systems.
Our partners and clients are not caught by surprise when disaster strikes. They obtain exclusive in-depth analytics, prognostics and decision support from our unrivalled prediction services. And with that, those who rely in us fulfil the most important mission of all: save lives and secure their livelihoods.
Sustainability and Prosperity
Our operation is conducted in a physically consistent, ethically mindful, socially just, and ecologically and economically fruitful manner. We do not work solely towards sustainability. We work towards prosperity. Prosperity for the Earth system, which entails concessions from everybody, for the benefit of all. Promoting a sensible and constructive coevolution between humans and nature.
