Climatology and Environment


The Climatology section uses a simulation and modelling approach to study the past behaviour and future trends in the climate system in Pakistan. The key areas of research include climate system modelling, past and projected climatic changes, climatic extremes, research on intra seasonal to decadal predictability, estimation of GHG emissions (energy sector and industrial processes) and linking energy and environment models for emission projections and identification of optimum mitigation strategies.

Activities:

  • Assessment of past climate trends over Pakistan
  • Evaluation and application of IPCC- GCMs for construction of future climate projections over Pakistan
  • Identification, assessment and application of appropriate regional climate models (RCMs) to develop fine scale climate projections over Pakistan for impact assessment studies
  • Identification, assessment and application of appropriate tools/models for the study of intra seasonal to decadal climate prediction
  • Development and application of climate extreme indices and indicators for monitoring and prediction of trends in climate extremes and their socio-economic impacts
  • Development and regular updating of GHG emission inventory of Pakistan (energy sector and industrial processes) following the methodologies laid down in IPCC guidelines
  • Analysis of GHG emissions projections and identification of optimum mitigation strategies for various source categories in Pakistan’s energy system by linking energy and environment models
