Climate change at the end of a warm stage

Climate change at the end of a warm stage
DEKLIM-EEM is a joint project consisting out of 9 individual proposals. The project was financially supported by the German Ministry for Education and Research(BMBF) within the framework of the research programme DEKLIM (
The purpose of the joint project is to reconstruct the climate of past interglacials and to contribute to the understanding of mechanism that are responsible for the transition to a cold stage.
This project was coordinated by the Institute for Geosciences, University of Mainz. A description of all individual proposals can be found at:
The datasets in the CERA database are the results of the project contributions of the Model and Data Group at the Max-Planck-Institute for Meteorology and the Institute for Meteorology at the FU Berlin. The coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model ECHO-G has been used to perform climate simulations of the Eemian interglacial (125,000 years before present) and the subsequent glacial inception (115,000 years before present) by adapting Earth s orbital parameters and greenhouse gas concentrations to conditions of these periods. A simulation of pre-industrial climate is available for comparison.
