Prediction and Attribution of Extremes: From Climate to Weather


Session Description:

The World Climate Research Programme has identified the science underpinning the prediction and attribution of extreme events as one of its six grand challenges.  This session explores that challenge from several perspectives, including emerging capabilities to observe, monitor and predict extremes,  the understanding of processes that contribute to their development and amplification, the ability of models to represent extreme events, and the prospects for attributing causes such as rising greenhouse gas concentrations to recent damaging, high impact, events.
