New discussion series to advance knowledge on tipping elements

Don’t miss this opportunity to take part in the scientific discussion about looming abrupt changes in the Earth system. A new webinar series invites scientists interested in tipping elements and the broader public to attend.

This series of online discussions aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. It supports efforts to increase consistency in treatment of tipping elements in the scientific community, develop a research agenda, and design joint experiments and ideas for a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project (TipMip).

The discussion series is a joint activity of the Analysis, Integration, and Modeling of the Earth System (AIMES) global research project of Future Earth, the Earth Commission Working Group 1 Earth and Human Systems Intercomparison Modelling Project (EHSMIP) under the Global Commons Alliance and the Safe Landing Climates Light House Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP).

The events (60-90 min each) will be held monthly and are open to the public. In 2021, the following events are planned:

  • 1st Event  September 20, 2021, 12:00-13:30 CEST: Introduction
  • 2nd Event November 29, 2021, 17.00-18.30 CET: Amazon – register here
