WORKSHOP – Uncertainty in Climate Change Research

Uncertainty is present in all phases of climate change research from the physical science (e.g., projections of future climate) to the impacts through to the effort to make decisions regarding mitigation and adaptation across different spatial scales. This theme will embrace all aspects of uncertainty in climate change research, providing a pedagogic whole for students, post docs, and early career scientists interested in any and all aspects of climate change. advanced study program

One central focus will be the need to understand the strands of uncertainty throughout the climate change problem in order to focus effectively in any one area. We aim to train the next generation of postgraduates in interdisciplinary thinking. This colloquium builds on a workshop held two years ago at NCAR in IMAGe. Core topics will be similar but new topics have also been added.
