Workshop on Extremal Trends in Weather (WET Weather) 2019
This event has ended.
The most hazardous weather events are by nature rare and one of the greatest challenges for climate researchers is the societal request for information about changes to the frequency and magnitudes of extreme events and consequential risks to communities and the environment in decades to come.
In view of the new release of the 2018 UK climate projections (the UKCP18), our first workshop will provide a forum for discussing the suitability of data and methods to answer questions around future extreme events.
