Our three-year consortium project brought together the UK climate modelling, statistical modelling, and impacts communities to work closely together for the first time on developing risk-based prediction for decision making in the face of climate variability and change.
The project team included researchers from the universities of Leeds, Exeter, Oxford, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Liverpool, Reading, the London School of Economics and the Plymouth Marine Laboratory. Project partners included the Met Office, Environment Agency and CAFOD. Our work fed directly into future IPCC and Met Office assessments of climate change.
