6th Working Group Meeting - Large ensemble simulations for compound event research

Compound weather and climate events are combinations of multiple climate drivers and/or hazards that contribute to societal or environmental risk. Understanding and analysing compound events require large datasets that allow for sampling the unfortunate combinations causing the impacts. In this context, large ensemble simulations from climate models are very promising for advancing the current understanding of compound events. 

The workshop will bring together people with expertise in compound events and large ensemble simulations. The underlying target will be to share work related to the topic of the workshop, hence networking and fostering collaborations. The participants will have discussions on three main topics (model evaluation and bias correction, storylines and identification of "Black swans", attribution of past and future changes), such as to potentially develop new ideas for future work/projects.
