The UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology will be hosting an online workshop to describe and make accessible a new set climate and socio-economic scenario datasets and products for the UK, to support future research and policy on UK climate risk and resilience.
The datasets and products are based on the most recent set of widely applied scenarios for investigating climate change risk and resilience – the IPCC-community Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs) and Shared Socio-economic Pathways (SSPs). The UK-SCAPE (UK Status Change and Projections of the Environment) project has produced downscaled RCP-based climate datasets and, together with the UKCR-funded UK-SSPs project, downscaled and enriched SSP datasets and products specifically for the UK.
The online workshop (via Zoom) will discuss how these data and products can be shared with the community, discuss how they might be used, and gather feedback on how best to make these data and products available. The workshop aims are:
- to describe what scenario datasets and products have been created and the methods used
- to explain and discuss the basis and potential use of these datasets and products
- to assess how the wider community might want to use the data and products
- to discuss the best approaches to making the RCP climate data available and usable by the community.
Register to attend. (Please note bookings close 14 April)
