Climate prediction from model to users
This week we had a special meeting of the H2020 research and innovation project, BlueAction In Lisbon. It’s a highly diverse project covering every link in the chain from improving the physics in climate models, through undestanding dynamics and larger impacts of Atlantic and Arctic climate change, through to climate prediction and it’s application to a diverse range of end users.
One of the main foci of the meeting was strengthening the links between those working with climate models and prediction systems, and those engaging with users of clinate Projection and prediction data. It’s a highly iterative process but also a very satisfying one as we make good progress in understanding how to beat develop and make use of climate data for practical purposes.
A packed schedule didn’t leave much time for seeing Lisbon, but worth getting up early to enjoy the Portuguese coastline.
