WET Weather -- Workshop on Extremal Trends in Weather
* First workshop: 29 April - 1 May 2019, Gregynog (Wales)
* Second workshop: 2020 Gregynog
Join us in 2019 and 2020 for two interdisciplinary Workshops on Extremal Trends in Weather (WET Weather) to discuss the suitability of data and methods for a better understanding of rare and hazardous events in a warming climate.
In view of the imminent release of the 2018 UK climate projections (the UKCP18), this meeting provides a forum for discussing the suitability of data and methods to answer questions around future extreme events, with major objectives being:
* To facilitate discussion and build new partnerships between researchers in statistical and environmental science disciplines with an interest in rare and hazardous events.
* To introduce environmental researchers to a broader range of opportunities offered by current techniques in extreme value theory (EVT).
* To demonstrate the challenges experienced by environmental researchers, particularly how climate change information comes in many different formats, and how its production can hamper the ability to robustly and accurately estimate characteristics of future extreme events.

These events are supported by the Royal Statistical Society, Cardiff University's Water Research Institute and the GW4 Water Security Alliance.
