DESCRIPTION

Predictability and Risk Assessment of the Impacts of climate-driven Natural Hazards

 

 The main objectives of the project are as follows:

* To assess the limits of predictability of extreme climate events accounting for their timing and regional localization;

* To estimate predictability of compound climate extremes and identify those types which are most predictable;

* To develop a methodological concept for linking the intensity of climate extremes to risks of natural hazards;

* To develop quantitative projections of different types of climate extremes at different time and space scales for the mid and end of 21st century over the Russian Federation;

* To provide accurate predictions of the intensity and frequency of climate associated natural hazards for different regions of the Russian Federation.
