Review Article on the Role of Complex Systems in the Study of Climate Change by CAFE Researchers is Published and Featured
The review article ‘Perspectives on the importance of complex systems in understanding our climate and climate change – The Nobel Prize in Physics 2021’ by CAFE researchers Shraddha Gupta, Nikolaos Mastrantonas, Cristina Masoller and Jürgen Kurths has been published in Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science.
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.
