Join us for this webinar series that aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. In this installment, experts will discuss early warning signals.

The Tipping points discussion series supports efforts to increase consistency in the 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). It 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). IIASA co-hosts the scientific secretariat of Working Group 1 of the Earth Commission and is one of the organizers of these events.

This webinar will include presentations on:

  • Climate Tipping Points: Theory, empirical evidence, and uncertainties by Niklas Boers (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research - PIK)
  • The spatial signatures of dryland ecosystems resilience by Sonia Kéfi (University of Montpellier)
  • Q&A/ Discussion 

The session will be moderated by Joshua Buxton and/or Chris Huntingford from Exeter University.
