Earth’s Climate Change: Science and Impacts News

Climate change observation, Earth system modeling, paleoclimate, limited area modeling, and climate change impact scientists are kindly invited to a three-day symposium “Earthʹs Climate Change: Science and Impacts,” organized by the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, October 11-13, 2017, in Belgrade, Serbia. Sessions will be held on what recent observations are telling us, Earth climate system modeling issues, lessons for the future we have from past climate, such as from the Eemian interglacial period, regional climate modeling, addressing Mediterranean / South-eastern Europe in particular, and climate change impact we can expect on vital issues of water, agriculture, energy, economy, health.

The issues to be dealt with include

  • What is the state-of-the-art of climate change modeling, and what do the modern observations and climate change projection results tell us?
  • How can we complement or amend our projections using paleoclimate data and studies? In other words, what are past climate lessons for the future?
  • What specifically are near-term climate futures of south-eastern Europe / Mediterranean, and what are or should be the methodologies best used for such regional projections? What are the assessments of their impacts on vital issues of water, energy, agriculture, forestry, sustainability, economy, environment, health, other? There is no participant fee.

When: October 11-13, 2017
Where: Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Knez Mihailova 35, Belgrade, Serbia
