The term “storyline” is increasingly visible in publications and discussions relating to climate science. In this video, EULALIA BAULENAS analyzes ways in which researchers in different disciplines employ this term as well as highlighting examples of best practice. Conducting a semi-systematic literature review, Baulenas identifies three main approaches: the discourse analytical approach, the story and simulation approach and physical climate storylines. Foregrounding the benefits associated with interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity, the research provides researchers in different fields with interesting insights into alternative potential approaches to storyline in climate related science.


Eulalia Baulenas is a postdoctoral researcher in the Earth Sciences Department at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. Having completed her doctoral work at the University of Freiburg in 2021, she has also provided consultation expertise for the European Commission. Baulenas’s current research focuses on participatory methodologies and knowledge coproduction for climate services.


Barcelona Supercomputing Center

Barcelona Supercomputing Center-Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS) is the national supercomputing centre in Spain. We specialise in high performance computing (HPC) and manage MareNostrum, one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe, located in the Torre Girona chapel.

BSC is at the service of the international scientific community and of industry that requires HPC resources. Our multidisciplinary research team and our computational facilities –including MareNostrum– make BSC an international centre of excellence in e-Science.

Since its establishment in 2005, BSC has developed an active role in promoting HPC in Spain and Europe as an essential tool for international competitiveness in science and engineering. The centre manages the Red Española de Supercomputación (RES), and was a founding and hosting member of the former European HPC infrastructure PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe), and is now hosting entity for EuroHPC JU, the Joint Undertaking that leads large-scale investments and HPC provision in Europe. We actively participate in the main European HPC initiatives, in close cooperation with other European supercomputing centres.
