Compound Events at AGU Fall Meeting 2019

Start Date: 2019/12/09 End Date: 2019/12/13 Open
This December's AGU meeting in San Francisco, USA has (tentatively) several sessions related to compound events:  

GC022 - Correlated Climate Extremes: Drivers, Mechanisms, and Risks

(Conveners: C. Raymond, K. Kornhuber, R. Horton, J. Zscheischler)

Invites contributions that broadly involve correlation among drivers or impacts, divisible into three categories: (i) compound extremes (multiple variables, same time and place); (ii) concurrent extremes (same time, multiple places); (iii) sequential or persistent extremes (multiple times, same place).

 

GC020 - Compound weather and climate extremes: Mechanism, predictability, and projection

(Conveners: J. Yoon, S. Wang, H. Kim)

Welcomes abstracts examining the dynamical processes underlying rapid successions of extreme events, of the same or different type.
  GC013 - Climate-Hydrology-Human Interactions and Their Implications on Hydroclimate Extremes in a Changing Environment (Conveners: X. Yuan, M. Pan, N. Wanders, Z.-L. Yang) Abstracts should address multi-scale processes of hydroclimatic extremes and their interaction with human factors to create risk.  

GC012 - Climate Extremes: Patterns, mechanisms and attribution

(Conveners: C. Funk, S. Herring, D. Mitchell, A. Hoell)

Invites abstracts advancing physical understanding of water-cycle extremes across weather-to-climate timescales, especially via theory or modeling.

     
 

EMS 2019 Annual Meeting

Start Date: 2019/09/09 End Date: 2019/09/13 Open
The Annual Meetings of the EMS aim at fostering exchange and cross-fertilization of ideas in the meteorological, climatological, and related communities. Facilitating interactions, integration, and engagement of science, applications, and actors is our core objective. The session programme highlights these goals and offers many opportunities for enhancing collaboration across the entire weather and climate enterprise (public, private, academic, users, and NGOs) to benefit societies in Europe and worldwide. A co-organized between DAMOCLES and ECRA (European Climate Research Alliance) has a strong focus on compound events:  From hazards to impacts: understanding the mechanisms behind single and compound climate events. Abstract submission deadline is 12 April 2019.

14th International Meeting on Statistical Climatology

Start Date: 2019/06/24 End Date: 2019/06/28 Closed
These meetings, which have been held roughly every three years since 1979, are organized by independent statisticians, climatologists and atmospheric scientists. They facilitate communication between the climate and statistics communities and promote good statistical practice in climate and atmospheric science (see http://imsc.pacificclimate.org/). Abstract submission is now open. The deadline for abstract submission is February 20, 2019. The list of sessions is provided below and further information can be found on the conference website: http://www.meteo.fr/cic/meetings/2019/IMSC

Workshop on Correlated Extremes at Columbia University

Start Date: 2019/05/28 End Date: 2019/05/31 Closed
This workshop aims to bring together a broad and diverse range of climate scientists, societal-impacts researchers, and policymakers to establish what is currently known about correlated climate extremes, and to forge promising new paths. These include a wide array of events: those which are extreme in multiple variables ('compound'); those which are simultaneous but separated in space ('concurrent'); and those which impact the same location sequentially or persistently. By providing a broad survey of these developing lines of research from the dual perspectives of climate science and social science, a key goal of this workshop is to expand and integrate the community of researchers and practitioners becoming interested in spatiotemporally correlated extremes. It will have a special focus on novel and interdisciplinary work. The workshop will be organized into sessions of ~6 talks followed by plenty of time for discussion (panels, small groups with guiding questions, and unstructured). There will also be an introductory evening panel and afternoon poster sessions. Registration is now open at this link. Abstract submissions are open until February 11, 2019 at this link. Please see our website at bit.ly/corrextr for more information.

Workshop on physical modeling supporting a “storyline approach”

Start Date: 2019/04/24 End Date: 2019/04/26 Closed
While narratives or storylines have been used for decades in social sciences and beyond (e.g. RCPs, SSPs, economic risk assessment), the concept of analyzing and communicating high-impact weather extreme events in the climate change context via storylines has recently gained quite some popularity in the climate modeling community. Storylines are also a useful way to investigate and communicate compound events, which are in the focus of DAMOCLES. As a cross-Working Group meeting of DAMOCLES, this meeting is funded by COST. More detailed information are available at the workshop webpage.

EGU General Assembly 2019

Public Defence of Dominik Paprotny: Methods for Improving Pan-European Flood Risk Mapping

Start Date: 2018/11/14 End Date: 2018/11/14 Closed
On November 14, Dominik Paprotny will be defending his dissertation entitled:

"Methods for Improving Pan-European Flood Risk Mapping"

Abstract

In the past decade, there has been growing interest in analysing flood hazard and risk on European scale. Such studies allow assessment of climate change impacts, can be used at EU-level policymaking and provide information on countries where local flood maps are not available. In this thesis, some innovative methodologies that contribute to improvement of pan-European flood mapping are explored. The topics covered include: (1) using Bayesian statistics to reduce time needed to map river flood hazard compared to rainfall-runoff models; (2) computing extreme sea levels and coastal flood hazard zones under present and future climate; (3) adjusting historical flood losses for changes in exposure to reveal true long-term trends in flood losses in Europe; (4) utilizing dependency modelling for assessing the hazard of compound flood occurrence. The full thesis can be accessed here.
