Workshop on Correlated Extremes at Columbia University
May 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - May 31, 2019 @ 2:00 pm
This workshop aims to bring together a broad and diverse range of climate scientists, societal-impacts researchers, and policymakers to establish what is currently known about correlated climate extremes, and to forge promising new paths. These include a wide array of events: those which are extreme in multiple variables (‘compound’); those which are simultaneous but separated in space (‘concurrent’); and those which impact the same location sequentially or persistently.
By providing a broad survey of these developing lines of research from the dual perspectives of climate science and social science, a key goal of this workshop is to expand and integrate the community of researchers and practitioners becoming interested in spatiotemporally correlated extremes. It will have a special focus on novel and interdisciplinary work. The workshop will be organized into sessions of ~6 talks followed by plenty of time for discussion (panels, small groups with guiding questions, and unstructured). There will also be an introductory evening panel and afternoon poster sessions.
