Loading the dice: climate change and extreme weather
The role of human-induced climate change on recent extreme weather events in Ireland and across the globe will be explored at a UCC talk next week.
Professor Myles Allen of the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford will present findings from analyses of storms. Open to the public event, this free event organised by UCC Climate CoLab at the Environmental Research Institute, UCC, will take place on Monday, February 27, at Room 1.07 of UCC’s Western Gateway Building on Western Road.
Professor Allen’s 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.
Co-director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship, he has also 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.
