Concentrating on the research enabled by the BOINC platform and its future development roadmap, we bring together an exciting focus event for the whole community.
A new paper co-authored by climateprediction.net team members shows changes such as bioenergy expansion have considerable influence on projections of temperature extremes. The motivation for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report of 1.5°C stems from the need to understand how the impacts of climate change may evolve for half a degree of global warming. […]
Understanding how continuing increases in global mean temperature will exacerbate societal exposure to extreme weather events is a question of profound importance. Following the signing of the Paris Agreement in December 2015, a targeted focus has emerged within the scientific community to better understand how changes to the global climate system will evolve in response […]
Climateprediction.net’s Professor David Wallom and Dr Sarah Sparrow are visiting Dhaka, Bangladesh, this March for a stakeholder workshop around the REBuILD project (Risk Evaluation of Brahmaputra Inundations for Loss and Damage). During this stakeholder workshop, participants will share their opinions and insights on how extreme event risk assessments could be further developed for comprehensive risk […]
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 […]
