Wp 6 2 linking impact models to probabilistic scenarios of climate change

Modelling behaviour of systems or activities in different environments developed, tested and applied under European conditions for evaluating the potential impacts of climate change.

Task 6.2.a Response surfaces and impact thresholds

Task 6.2.b Scenario impacts and risk assessment

Task 6.2.c Evaluating the impacts of extreme events

WP 6.2 Linking impact models to probabilistic scenarios of climate change


Wp 6 2 tasks progress to date

Task 6.2.1: Preparation of impact models for scenario analysis (DJF, DISAT, FUB, SMHI, UREADMM) (Completed)

Task 6.2.4: Estimation of critical impacts thresholds for water resources based on historical drought and flood events (SMHI, UNIK) (Completed)

Task 6.2.9: Preliminary scenario impacts and risk assessment from available climate projections for selected models of crops, runoff, permafrost, soils (DJF, DISAT, FMI, SMHI, SYKE) (Completed)

Task 6.2.10: Preliminary evaluation of the impacts of extreme events using selected impact models for crops, human health, forest fire, forest damage, intense precipitation, drought, wind and temperature extremes from available climate projections (DISAT, FMI, FUB, NOA, PAS, UEA, ULUND, UREADMM) (Ongoing)

Task 6.2.11: Application of preliminary results from the Ensembles Prediction System to impact models for estimating risks of extremes and risks of impacts (All partners) (Ongoing)

New Task 6.2.12: Compilation and analysis of final results and drafting of joint paper on the application of probabilistic climate projections for assessing risks of impacts in Europe (DJF, DISAT, FMI, SMHI, SYKE)

New Task 6.2.13: Compilation of final model results of the impacts of climate extremes, analysis of the uncertainties in estimates, and drafting of a joint paper on the impacts of projected changes in climate extremes on climate-sensitive sectors in Europe (DISAT, FMI, FUB, NOA, PAS, UEA, ULUND, UREADMM)

Your expected contributions to the deliverables and milestones in the Detailed Implementation Plan (DIP)

Other points arising

Prague presentations


Follow up to helsinki

Some points arising:

GCM archive not available in April – has this been solved?

Observational data from RT5 (1958- at 25 km spatial resolution) should be available from September – cf. M. Haylock presentation, 11 am, Wednesday

WP6.2 data requests surveyed; main concern is the timing of data delivery

RCM runs: deadline is December 2007; majority for 1950-2050; some run to 2100; weighting of RCM outputs – cf. J. Christensen presentation, 16.40, Tuesday; Parallel session, 13.30-15.00, Thursday

Seasonality – representation in the response surfaces

Non-stationarity – implications for model calibration

Scaling – from model grid to larger scale (e.g. river basin)

Follow-up to Helsinki
