Workshop "Uncertainty in Climate Change Research: An Integrated Approach"
The workshop focues on uncertainties being present in climate change research and its applications, e.g. projections of future climate, and their impacts on decision-making in particular with respect to climate change mitigation and adaptation policy across different temporal and spatial scales.
Throughout the workshop some of these gaps shall be filled, including
- methods that facilitate consistent treatment of uncertainties in different parts of the climate change problem,
- accounting for additional factors outside quantifiable ones that contribute to uncertainty in decision making,
- accounting for the effect of cognitive biases that prevent consistency from one discipline to the next, and
- critical differences in the end-to-end academic process vs. reality (i.e., practical application vs. theoretical approaches).
The workshop is designed for graduate students, post-docs, and early career scientists from a wide range of disciplines, such as statistics, climate modeling and analysis, climate impacts, decision-making, policy, communication, and social science concerned with vulnerability and climate chagne, being interested in the understanding of the integrated uncertainty problem in particular with respect ot climate change research.
