UP3.1Climate change detection, assessment of trends, variability and extremes
|Convener: Albert M.G. Klein Tank | Co-Conveners: Monika Lakatos , Martine Rebetez|
The aim of this session will be studies that bridge the spatial scales and reach the timescales of extreme events that impact all our lives. Papers are solicited on advancing the understanding of causes of observed changes in mean climate, in its variability and in the frequency and intensity of extreme events. In particular, papers are invited on trends in the regional climate of Europe, not just the mean, but variability and extremes, often for the latter measured through well-chosen indices.
