“Loading the dice: climate change and extreme weather in Ireland, Europe and the World” Professor Myles Allen, University of Oxford
Monday 27th February, 18.30-20.00 | Room 1.07 | Western Gateway Building | Western Road, UCC, Cork | Tickets free | Eventbrite
Professor Allen will explore the role of human influence on climate in recent extreme weather events. The talk will present findings from recent analysis of storms in Ireland and UK to show that we can now answer this question with some degree of certainty.
Myles Allen is Professor of Geosystem Science in the Environmental Change Institute, School of Geography and the Environment and Department of Physics, University of Oxford, and co-Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship. His research focuses on how human and natural influences on climate contribute to observed climate change and risks of extreme weather and in quantifying their implications for long-range climate forecasts. He has served on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 3rd, 4th and 5th Assessments, most recently on the IPCC Synthesis Report Core Writing Team in 2014.
This is a free event open to the public organized by UCC Climate CoLab at the Environmental Research Institute, University College Cork, Ireland.
