IAQM webinar: Using model ensemble data to better understand climate risk

Our climate is changing. We need to understand how existing and future assets and infrastructure may be affected by long term temperature rise and the increased likelihood of extreme events, such as storms and flooding.

This webinar introduced the coupled model intercomparison project (CMIP6), described some of the resources available and provide examples of data analysis. How these climate model outputs can be used to quantify the risk of climate change were described in terms of assessing the climate resilience of airports. This webinar concluded by considering some of the different reasons for reporting climate risk, including climate-related financial disclosure.
