The global warming effect of leaked hydrogen is almost 12 times stronger than co₂, shows a new study by CICERO, a climate research centre, published in Nature Communications Earth & Environment.
Hydrogen is often considered a green energy carrier that has the potential to replace oil, but little is known about its environmental and climate impacts. Over the next three years, CICERO will therefore study what these impacts are.
The research group covers a broad range of topics within the atmospheric sciences. We are primarily a modelling group, studying radiative forcing of the climate system, and the role of gases, aerosols and clouds.
