Recent research assessed that many interactions between climate tipping elements are of a destabilizing nature, leading to the possibility of climate domino effects. In this installment of the Tipping points webinar series, experts will review the current state of literature on tipping point interactions and discuss risks for cascading transitions under current global warming trajectories.

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 by:

  • Nico Wunderling (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Center for Critical Computational Studies, Frankfurt am Main)
  • Anna von der Heydt (Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research, Utrecht University)
  • Q&A/ Discussion 

The session will be moderated by Viktor Brovkin from the Max Planck Institute.
