Professor Myles Allen speaking at EGU about weather@home 2014 UK Flooding Experiment

Professor Myles Allen will be presenting the results from our weather@home 2014 UK Flooding experiment at a press conference at the EGU (European Geophysical Union) General Assembly in Vienna tomorrow.

The press conference will be streamed live, and you can watch it on the EGU website.

We will be formally releasing the results tomorrow morning, to coincide with the press conference.

The press conference is entitled, “The IPCC Assessment Climate Change 2013 and beyond: making sense of recent climate change” and as well as Professor Myles Allen, involves Thomas Stocker, Co-Chair Working Group I, Gian-Kasper Plattner, Head Technical Support Unit Working Group I and Jochem Marotzke, Max Planck Institute of Meteorology, Hamburg.

At EGU 2014, the Working Group I of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (WGI IPCC) is convening three scientific sessions and a Union Session to mark the completion of a five year effort by thousands of scientists worldwide. In this press conference, the Co-Chair of WGI IPCC will summarise the lessons learnt from the past assessment and reflect on the implications for future assessments carried out by the IPCC. The Head of the Technical Support Unit will report on the assessment process and highlight particular challenges. Finally, WGI authors will discuss two issues regarding recent climate change: (i) the ‘warming pause’ observed during the past 15 years, and (ii) the role of man-made climate change in recent extreme weather events. The latest research findings are put into the context of the comprehensive assessment by IPCC completed in September 2013.

The EGU is Europe’s premier geosciences union, dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the geosciences and the planetary and space sciences for the benefit of humanity, worldwide. The EGU General Assembly 2014 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geosciences.
