Briefing note 15: Can we limit global warming to 1.5C°?

Irrespective of tipping points, climate change adaptation efforts will be less costly and disruptive to society – and will stand a better chance of success – if warming can be limited to 1.5°C rather than 2°C or higher. We therefore in no way advocate for policies that forgo pursuing the ambition to limit global warming to 1.5°C, regardless of whether that target remains feasible or not.

PhD position (Spain) on Precipitation extremes, climate change and convection-permitting models

The University of the Balearic Islands (Spain) is seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to work on sub-hourly precipitation extremes using convection-permitting models. The project is aimed at understanding the processes that will contribute to future potential changes in sub-hourly rainfall extremes over the Mediterranean region, which is frequently exposed to very high-impact severe weather conditions.

UMELB02: Convection and extreme rainfall characteristics using radar

The accumulation of rainfall over a given area depends on a range of things, including duration, intensity, and propagation speed. It is the characteristics of convection that ultimately determine these rainfall properties. The idea for this project is to use a simple method to characterise the properties of the most intense convective / rainfall bearing systems from radar data.
