UCC Climate CoLab 2017 Seminar Series
- 17 Feb 2017
Professor Myles Allen, Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford will be giving a presentation on "Loading the dice: climate change and extreme weather in Ireland, Europe and the World".
Professor Allen's presentation will take place on Monday, February 27th from 18:30 - 20:00 in room 1.07, Western Gateway Building, UCC, Western Road, Cork.
In this seminar, Professor Allen will explore the role of human induced climate change on recent extreme weather events in Ireland, Europe and the World. The talk will present findings from analysis of storms to show that this is a question that can now be answered with some certainty.
Myles Allen is Professor of Geosystem Science in the Environmental Change Institute, School of Geography and the Environment and Department of Physics, University of Oxford, and co-Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship. His 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. He has 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.
