TRAINING SCHOOL - ATTRIBUTING IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE (I2C): CHALLENGES, METHODS AND PERSPECTIVES

Dates: 26-31 May 2024

Location: Maison Clément, Les Plantiers, France (Maps)

Format: in person

 

Deadline for application: 29 February 2024

ABSTRACT

A large number of extreme weather and climate events have occurred recently in Europe and around the world, causing damage to infrastructure and loss of life, particularly in developing countries. This has raised the question of the role of climate change in altering the likelihood or magnitude of a number of these events. The science of attributing extreme events has been? developed to answer these questions. With the many advances in this field, it is now possible to go beyond the attribution of climatic events and look at their impacts as well. This is one of the major challenges facing the attribution sciences. At the same time, the development of data processing techniques based on artificial intelligence algorithms is opening up the prospect of new techniques that could help tackle this challenge.

 

The school will provide an introduction to some various aspects of attribution of extreme weather events and their impacts to climate change, including perspectives brought into the field by advances in machine learning. In addition to morning lectures, the afternoons will be dedicated to student projects. There will be 5 student projects;  each student will work on the same project in groups for the duration of the school.
