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

Tuesday, 24 January 2023 - 12:30pm to 1:15pm

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 will introduce the coupled model intercomparison project (CMIP6), describe 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 will be described in terms of assessing the climate resilience of airports. This webinar will conclude by considering some of the different reasons for reporting climate risk, including climate-related financial disclosure.
