In the last few years, the social and economical impact of extreme weather events on society and economy has been increasing significantly and receiving lots of attention by the media, social media and public in general. In this talk, Dr. Suzana Camargo at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, will give an overview of the current state of knowledge on the relationship between extreme weather and climate events and anthropogenic climate change. She will present a general overview on various types of extreme events, but provide special attention to hurricanes and typhoons. She will discuss the current trends of extreme events, the attribution of specific extreme events to climate change, as well as the projections for the end of the century.
This event is part of the OIST Foundation's Future of Climate Webinar Series.
