What is the CRESCENDO Project?


The primary aims of the CRESCENDO project are: 1) to improve the numerical representation of key Earth system processes in models used to predict climate and the Earth system; 2) Evaluate the performance of these models; 3) use the updated models to generate new projections for the coming century as part of the United Nations CMIP6 initiative. You can explore the output of some of the future projections here in the app — follow the Explore Output link below.


There are seven Earth system models in the CRESCENDO project – each developed by a number of different scientific centres:
