Climate Change: Nonlinear Dynamics Predictions of Regional Effects

Project background

Most models of climate changes are based on extrapolation of observed linear trends. At the same time, though global warming is well established, the question of persistence of trends on regional scales remains controversial. Indeed, climate change for specific region and specific time interval by definition includes more than the simple average of weather conditions. Either random events or long term changes, or more often combinations of them, can bring about significant swings in a variety of climate indicators from one time period to the next. Therefore in order to achieve further understanding of dynamics of climate change and prevent related disasters, the character of stable peculiarities of analysed dynamics should be investigated.

The main objective of this project was therefore to obtain general dynamical characteristics of air temperature variation in Georgia, its persistence and memory characteristics as well as their relation to anthropogenic influences. For further information, see the project presentation and the main results.
