Since summer 2017, Juliane Petersen is contributing to the project “Bridging the Gap” which is aiming at transferring Climate Service Products developed at GERICS to the market. She identifies barriers of the operationalization and develops solutions to overcome these barriers. Presently, Juliane supports the work at GERICS for the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C.
Until mid of 2016, Juliane developed, coordinated and documented the process of prototype development at GERICS. Likewise, she maintained the journal Climate Services as Managing Editor. Juliane studied Geography in Greifswald and Berlin. In her diploma-thesis, she investigated the feedback of land-use change and irrigation for the simulated local and regional climate of the Hamburg metropolitan region. Thereafter, she worked as a scientist in the project KLIMZUG-NORD at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology for three years. There, she further explored feedbacks of forest distribution and coordinated in form and content the final report for decision-makers “Kursbuch Klimaanpassung”.
