Climate extreme events: What's behind seasonal prediction for water management?
Join us for a webinar on Feb 17, 2021 at 10:00 AM CET.
If you are a scientist or a student on climatic predictions and aquatic sciences, a climate services developer or a stakeholder from the water sector, this webinar is a must!
What's in? A state-of-the-art of seasonal prediction and its applications on water sector, including featured specialists and stakeholders that will share their experiences.
Climate Extreme Events, like heat waves, droughts and floods, stress ecosystems and compromise their capacity to provide key services related to water. This implies huge economic and social impacts, which are expected to be even more relevant in the future. Anticipating these events through seasonal climate prediction can help reduce the associated risks. Thus, it has become a matter of interest for managers and a variety of stakeholders worldwide.
During its final project conference, WATExR team will present the results of the past three years, showcasing workflows and available tools developed. An opportunity to discuss about handling probabilistic forecast in real-world management. With insightful discussions and inspiring speakers, covering not only modelling perspectives from scientists but also testimonials from key stakeholders.
About the project: The WATExR project integrates seasonal forecasting of extreme climatic events and models its impacts into water management. The project consortium involves partners from Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Australia and Spain, and is part of the ERA4CS, the ERANET JPI Climate. More info: https://watexr.eu/
