Well this is great. Judy Curry and Peter Webster will be presenting at this event, so I’ll get the chance to meet up with them again too. I’ll try not to be pushy here, but I hope I’ll be able to garner some interest in our techniques in the foyer and coffee bar as well as listening carefully to the tone and approach being offered by the various speakers during the formal sessions.
Handling uncertainty in weather and climate prediction, with application to health, agronomy, hydrology, energy and economics
Thursday 4 – Friday 5 October 2012
The Royal Society at Chicheley Hall: Home of the Kavli Royal Society International Centre, Buckinghamshire
Organised by Professor Tim Palmer FRS
For the attention of: Roger Tallbloke
Thank you for your email and interest in attending the above meeting at the Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, home of the Kavli Royal Society International Centre. On behalf of the organiser, the Royal Society would like to formally invite you to participate.
Synopsis of the meeting:
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.
