HUCE Seminar Room 440, 26 Oxford St., Cambridge

Special Climate Seminar: Myles Allen

HUCE presents "Carbon budgets for ambitious mitigation goals: the science challenges of adaptive mitigation" with Myles Allen, Professor of Geosystem Science, School of Geography and the Environment; Head, Climate Dynamics Group, Dept. of Physics; Leader, ECI Climate Research Programme, University of Oxford. 

Myles Allen is Professor of Geosystem Science in the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford, and Head of the Climate Dynamics Group in the University’s Department of Physics. His research focuses on how human and natural influences on climate contribute to observed climate change and risks of extreme weather and in quantifying their implications for long-range climate forecasts. Allen has served on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as lead author on Detection of Climate Change and Attribution of Causes for the 3rd Assessment in 2001 and as review editor on Global Climate Projections for the 4th Assessment in 2007. He proposed the use of Probabilistic Event Attribution to quantify the contribution of human and other external influences on climate to specific individual weather events and leads the project, using distributed computing to run the world’s largest ensemble climate modelling experiments.
