Join us for the 3rd instillation of the CIWEM South Western Branch’s webinars focused on COP26 with the Met Office. Presentations will focus on the important and evolving role of flood forecasting on mitigating climate change in a global context.
Details of the Met Office climate and weather forecast service throughout the World and involvement with developing climate change mitigation measures will be explained with the following three presentations:
Lizzie Kendon: “New estimates of short-duration precipitation extremes from UKCP Local (2.2km): implications for flood risk in a changing climate”;
Mike Vaughan: “Considerations of climate change in real time flood forecasting”;
Clare Waller: “Incorporating climate change in flood risk modelling and land use planning”.
A Question and Answer session will follow the presentations.
