Christopher Irrgang - Towards neural Earth system modelling by integrating artificial intelligence in Earth system science
29 September 2021 | Seminar

Earth system models (ESMs) are our main tools for quantifying the physical state of the Earth and predicting how it might change in the future under ongoing anthropogenic forcing.

Shannon Bengtson - A Tool for Probabilistic Assessment of Coastal Inundation in the Pacific
15 September 2021 | Seminar

Sea-level rise poses a significant threat to low-lying atoll communities in the Pacific, where inundation can damage infrastructure, homes, water resources, and crops.
