EUropean Prototype demonstrator for the Harmonisation and Evaluation of Methodologies for attribution of extreme weather Events
The EUPHEME project is developing a scientific capability to help societies throughout Europe become more resilient to extremes of weather in a changing climate.
Researchers at CEA/CNRS have developed new methods for attributing extreme weather events by calculating the characteristics of the weather patterns involved.This enables a more detailed understanding of how weather events are affected by climate change, for example by understanding how climate change has made heatwaves hotter given particular weather patterns.
A new platform has been developed by KNMI that enables researchers from different institutions to pool their data and analyses.This will facilitate more comprehensive assessments of extreme weather events by combining attribution methods developed at different institutes.
An attribution analysis by the Met Office showing a substantial effect of climate change on the 2018 European heatwave was presented at the UNFCCC climate change negotations in Katowice, Poland in December 2018 and was widely reported in the press.This is a good example of how the EUPHEME work is eliciting interest from both policy makers and the media.
My name is Prof. Peter Stott. I am the PI of the EUPHEME project. My email is email@example.com. I have a long-standing interest in understanding the causes of climate change and in assessing the extent to which extreme weather events have been affected by climate variability and change. Based at the Met Office I am keen to ensure that increased scientific understanding is exploited to the benefit of improved weather and climate services.
The project partners are Met Office, KNMI, Met Eireann, CNRS/CEA, Czech Globe, National Centre for Atmospheric Science (UK), BRGM, Meteo France.
The Met Office leads the project and is involved in developing new attribution methodologies alongside Meteo France, CNRS/CEA, KNMI, National Centre for Atmospheric Sciences and BRGM. KNMI leads on the development of the attribution platform. The delivery of attriution assessments is led by Met Office and CNRS/CEA. Stakeholder engagement is led by Met Eireann and Czech Globe. All partners work together to help ensure a coherent collaborative project.
