We are excited to invite submissions to the session "Understanding and modelling compound climate and weather events and their impacts (NH1.3/AS4.49)" at the EGU General Meeting in April 2019. This session, organised by DAMOCLES, aims to bring together climate scientists, impact modellers, statisticians, and stakeholders to discuss Compound Events, share their findings and connect to the … Continue reading Call for abstracts: Compound event session at EGU2019 organised by DAMOCLES

Official start of the COST Action on ‘Understanding and modeling compound climate and weather events (DAMOCLES)’

Yesterday was the official start of the COST Action DAMOCLES (also see our post from the 3rd of May). The kick off meeting in Brussels hosted representatives from almost all 28 countries taking part in this network Action, which facilitates the compound event community to join forces and tackle the challenges of compounding extreme weather and … Continue reading Official start of the COST Action on ‘Understanding and modeling compound climate and weather events (DAMOCLES)’

New article on compound events online in NHESS Discussions

Atmospheric rivers (ARs), long filaments of high water vapour concentration, play an important role in the occurrence of compound events (CEs) in the form of coinciding heavy precipitation and high water levels along the Dutch coast. Over the past 37 years around 70% of all CEs of this type can be associated to the presence … Continue reading New article on compound events online in NHESS Discussions

GEWEX Open Sciences Conference – Summary of session on “Addressing the Challenges of Compound Events”

Last week, international scientists came together for the 8th GEWEX Open Science Conference: Extremes and Water on the Edge. In 26 sessions a wide range of interdisciplinary topics were covered. Plenary talks at the beginning and end of each day gave an overview of the state-of-the-art and pressing issues. One of these plenaries was given … Continue reading GEWEX Open Sciences Conference – Summary of session on “Addressing the Challenges of Compound Events”
