Online talk: Findings about researching climate change and talking about it

 September 24th, 2021

Online via YouTube

16:00 (CET)

How confident are we in our projections?

We all have experienced (or will experience) the intensity of an extreme meteorological weather event in our lives, for example, persistent high temperatures during a heatwave or intense rainfall due to the development of an extratropical cyclone. Even if these events do not appear very often, they cause severe human and economic losses in the areas they cross.

As part of the activities organised by the CAFE network for the European Reserchers’ Night 2021, CAFE Team member Hervé Douville will give an open online talk that will be streamed at the event’s YouTube Channel.

Hervé Douville is a researcher at the Center National de Recherches Météorologiques in Météo-France, and works in global climate modeling and analysis, specialized in the water cycle. He is the lead author of chapter 8 (Water Cycles) in the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a United Nations agency that provides policy makers with a scientific assessment of climate change. The report addresses the most up-to-date physical understanding of the climate system and climate change, bringing together the latest advances in climate science, and combining multiple lines of evidence from paleoclimate, observations, process understanding, and global and regional climate simulations.

Hervé Douville will share some of his experience on participating in this assessment and will highlight some key findings of relevance to both mitigation and adaptation policies.

The European Researchers’ Night, funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, is a Europe-wide public event that brings researchers closer to the public. The European Researchers’ Night showcases the diversity of science and its impact on citizens’ daily lives, stimulating interest in research careers, particularly among young people, across more than 400 cities in Europe and beyond.

This year the European Researchers’ Night will run on September 24th in Barcelona with online and live activities. Children, young people and families will meet researchers and discover research, science and innovation through hands-on experiments, science shows, games, quizzes, competitions, exhibitions, and digital activities.

* The talk will be in English.
