In addition to a large number of scientific papers published in scientific journals, we also publish different formats including reports and studies for a readership with distinct previous or specialized knowledge in different thematic fields.
GERICS publications in detail:
Klimawandel in Deutschland
The National Assessment on Climate Change in Germany has recently been published. The study comprises the first ever collection and synthesis of all existing information about climate change in Germany. Thus the 5th IPCC Assessment Report is broken down to the national scale, enriched by additional information from "grey" literature, case studies and the authors’ own scientific findings. The German language book "Klimawandel in Deutschland" is meant to present state-of-the-art scientific knowledge in terms of the expressions of climate change, its impacts, deriving risks and adaptation options.
In GERICS Reports studies written by GERICS scientific staff and PhD students are published. The Reports cover results regarding different scientific questions and service oriented topics.
GERICS City Series
The GERICS City Series provides regional and service-oriented information on current issues in dealing with climate change for the urban space. The information is based on the diverse work done in the urban context at GERICS and covers the entire spectrum of regional and local climate information, climate change impacts and governance issues. The series focuses on the practical applicability of the information based on the current state of science.
The metropolitan region of Hamburg in warmer worlds
GERICS has developed a flyer on the impact of 1.5°C global warming on the Hamburg Metropolitan Region and has compiled further information on the background of the special report. In addition to the 1.5°C flyer, there is another flyer which describes how a global warming of 2°C, 3°C or 4°C affects the Hamburg metropolitan region.
Studies, Brochures and Documentations
A broad bandwidth of themes, sectors and topics is covered by the different GERICS studies, brochures and documentations.
Renowned authors and experts inform with "Klima konkret" in a compact, sound and easyly understandable way about important topics on climate.
Our newsletter reports about our different activities and informs with several contributions about climate science and climate services.
GERICS has published a hard-cover book about climate change and biodiversity, entitled "Klimawandel und Biodiversität - Folgen für Deutschland", as well as an e-book about water with the title "Warnsignal Kilma - Genug Wasser für alle?"
Scientific journal: Climate Services
In cooperation with the publisher Elsevier GERICS launched the scientific journal Climate Services. Since there was no scientific journal in the field of climate services addressing both scientists and practitioners, Climate Services aims to close this gap.
GERICS Climate-Fact-Sheets provide concise information on the magnitude of projected climate change and the range of these changes for individual countries or regions.
GERICS Climate-Focus-Papers provide an introduction to topics of particular relevance to support the design of projects and investments, in addition to aiding the evaluation of climate feasibility studies.
