Handling uncertainty in weather and climate prediction, with application to health, agronomy, hydrology, energy and economics

Uncertainty

Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Tim Palmer FRS

Event details

This meeting follows on from the 2010 Anniversary Discussion Meeting on “Handling Uncertainty in Science” but with a focus on weather and climate prediction and downstream applications. How is uncertainty represented in weather and climate prediction? How reliable are representations of uncertainty? How can decision makers in weather and climate sensitive sectors make useful decisions in the light of uncertain input? Are current ensemble weather and climate prediction systems useful for decision making across a variety of application sectors?  How should probability forecasts be presented to the public?
