Geographical and Geospatial Sciences Committee Fall 2022 Meeting
Droughts, storms, floods, wildfires, heatwaves and similar weather-related events have been increasing in recent years. These billion dollar disasters are expected to continue to increase over the next few decades due to climate change, putting stress on infrastructure, institutions, communities, and people. Predictions of future climate change are critical to preparing for impacts. Most planning for future impacts has been based on mid- and lower-end predictions from earth system models, but impacts and implications for society could be much worse under extreme climate change scenarios.
This meeting of the Geographical and Geospatial Sciences Committee will address the geographic dimensions of these scenarios and the role of novel geospatial data sources and analytics to improve understanding for basic research, policy and responses.
