Storylines as a way of bringing meaning to Climate Change at the local scale
1 December 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
We know that climate change is happening and is affecting extreme events at the local scale, but the usual scientific representation of climate change at the local scale is either highly aggregated or model-based, and generally excludes the human-managed component. Yet the observed record of change at the local scale can be rich in detail, meaningful, and relevant for local decision-making, if only we are able to use it. The key in doing so is to acknowledge the conditionality of the observed information and the multiple causal factors involved in the changes they record.
In this talk, the presenter will discuss how the storyline approach to regional climate information can do precisely this, thereby bringing meaning to climate change at the local scale.
