Recent hydrological extreme events demonstrate the vulnerability of European society to water-related natural hazards, and there is strong evidence that climate change will worsen these events in the coming years. Future hydrological extremes may be very different from today’s reality and difficult to predict. Changed water-related extremes will have important implications on the water sector and the design of water management practices. Hence, there is...

Experts from the World Food Programme have worked in collaboration with Met Office climate scientists to devise a measurement of food vulnerability to climate change. The Food Insecurity and Climate Change index is a measure of how vulnerable to disruption a country’s food security system is as a result of flood and drought events. The results of this research have been incorporated into an interactive...

The North Atlantic Ocean is one of the most important drivers for the global ocean circulation and its variability on time scales beyond inter-annual. Global climate variability is to a large extent triggered by changes in the North Atlantic sea surface state. The quality and skill of climate predictions depends crucially on a good knowledge of the northern sea surface temperatures (SST) and sea ice distributions. On...
