Using the template of BACC, another regional assessment report about the scientifically legitimate knowledge about climate, climate change and impacts has been prepared and is now published – concerning the metropolitan area of Hamburg. Organized by the Norddeutsches Klimabüro of the Hamburg climate research consortium CLISAP (including the Helmholtz Zentrum Geesthacht) the report was published by Springer Publishing as
von Storch, H., M. Claussen und KlimaCampus Autoren Team, 2010: Klimabericht für die Metropolregion Hamburg, Springer Verlag Heidelberg Dordrecht London New York, DOI 10.1007/978-3-642-16035-6, 321 pp.
Similar to BACC and its interaction with HELCOM, the responsibility for the assessment was exclusively with “the scientists”, but the format and issues were determined together with the Senate of the City of Hamburg as well as the Ministry for the Environment in Schleswig Holstein.
A short version of the report has been printed as a booklet, which can be downloaded here. For more details refer to this web page.
