Joint ICAS/ Priestley Seminar Abstract Heat waves are one of the hazardous extreme weather events that happen during March-June (MAMJ) in India. Most parts of the country suffers from heat waves during this period, with high frequency over north, northwest, central and the eastern coastal regions of India. Studies indicate that with increasing global warming/climate…
A joint Priestley / Civil Engineering seminar Abstract Scientific research into climate change pursues a better understanding of our complex earth systems leading to a reduction in the uncertainty regarding future climate and, in theory, more informed adaptation decisions and investment. So what is the value of this improved learning in an actual adaptation investment decision?…

Joint ICAS / Priestley seminar Abstract Future projections of surface warming are usually made using highly complex Earth system models. However, the historic simulations from these highly complex models often show discrepancy to observed climate change, in terms of historic surface warming, historic ocean heat content and historic carbon fluxes. A key goal is therefore to develop…
How can we implement significant change, in industry, lifestyles, and society at large in order to apprehend or prepare for its effects on those most at risk? This one-day conference, held at The University of Leeds, will interrogate and respond to the meaning of ‘hostile climates’ in diverse and receptive ways, hearing from PGR/ECR scholars across the…
