Paper presents tool for assessing risk of hydro-meteorological extremes in UK

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 13:47:57 +0000

Extreme weather events such as droughts and heavy precipitation can have large impacts on society and the economy, so ensuring that society is well prepared to face such events will have multiple benefits. Anthropogenic climate change is expected to have an impact on these types of events: warm temperature extremes and heavy precipitation extremes have […]

Can climate change impacts be inventoried? Dr Friederike Otto explores

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 10:54:16 +0000’s Dr Friederike Otto will be talking on extreme event attribution at the AAAS Annual Meeting (American Association for the Advancement of Science) in Austin, Texas, this February. Her talk – Extreme Event Attribution: Towards an Inventory of the Climate Change Impacts – on Sunday 18th February, is part of the Understanding Causality to Inform […]

Dr Otto’s Climate Series talk at KlimaCampus Hamburg

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 14:34:57 +0000

Dr Friederike Otto gave a talk on climate change attribution at KlimaCampus Hamburg recently. KlimaCampus is a network of universities, research institutes and federal authorities in Hamburg, which focuses on climate, climate change and climate consequences. Her talk, Changing climate hazards across timescales – combining extreme event attribution and medium term climate projections, was part […]

ECIU Report: 41 extreme event studies in 2 years show climate change link

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 14:21:51 +0000

A new report by the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit (ECIU) presents the findings of their analysis of all research papers published since the Paris summit two years ago on the attribution of specific events to climate change. Of 59 papers, the report says, 41 conclude that climate change has increased the risks of a […]

Cold snap in North America – World Weather Attribution analysis

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 13:27:35 +0000

Over recent years (2014, 2016 and now), there have been a number of extreme cold events in North America, although in different regions and of different durations. Low temperatures have been observed over much of northeastern North America during the two weeks between December 26, 2017 through January 8, 2018, and these temperatures are unusually […]

Dr Friederike Otto presents to Chinese and Brazilian scientists at LOTUS workshop

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 11:22:01 +0000‘s Dr Friederike Otto presented on climate attribution science to Chinese and Brazilian early career researchers today, as part of a week-long workshop for the LOTUS project being hosted by the Oxford e-Research Centre. The project is exploring why the climate in China is changing and what the implications could be for the country’s vulnerability […]

E&E News article explores how climate attribution science has developed in last 15 years

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 10:14:11 +0000

A recent article in Environment and Energy News explores how the science of attributing the effects of climate change to individual extreme weather events has developed over the last 15 years. The predominant view in the scientific community in 2003 was that, while it was evident that climate change had a significant event on the […]

The world’s largest Earth and space science meeting – the AGU Fall Meeting – took place in New Orleans, Louisiana, from 11-15 December. Post-doctoral Research Associate Dr Sihan Li (Meredith) attended the meeting to give several presentations on behalf of the project. Her presentation Changing frequency of flooding in Bangladesh: Is the wettest place […]

Human-caused warming intensified Hurricane Harvey’s rains

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 10:13:53 +0000

New research shows human-induced climate change increased the amount and intensity of Hurricane Harvey’s extreme rainfall. The new findings are published in Environmental Research Letters and were presented in a press conference on 13 December at the 2017 American Geophysical Union Fall meeting. During August 2017, Hurricane Harvey stalled over Texas and caused particularly extreme […]

New index of warming due to human influence on climate released

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 09:47:48 +0000

A new index of warming due to human influence on climate was released this week in the journal Nature Scientific Reports. It exceeded 1°C above mid-19th-century levels in 2017 and is rising faster than ever before, leaving little time to achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. “Global temperatures may be pushed up temporarily […]
