DMI has estimated the expected climate change in Denmark based on the latest Danish and European scenario calculations focusing on climate change towards the end of this century. The assessment of future climate change is based on the scenarios used by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and climate changes are expected to increase towards 2100. Climate simulations and understanding of associated uncertainties are constantly being improved. DMI here presents the latest results based on IPCC, BACC, European studies and the Danish CRES project where a number of climate simulations performed with several regional and global climate models. Projection of future climate change based on an ensemble of climate models is more robust than estimates based on a single model. Future sea level rise depends on melting of snow and ice on land and ocean heating. The amount of melting ice is associated with large uncertainties. The observed sea level around Denmark since 1900, corrected for land rise, is presented together with scenarios of future sea level rise.
