This paper from the UMFULA project reviews the current availability of climate information in Southern Africa and assesses the requirements of a variety of end users in the region, highlighting the importance of creating user-tailored climate services. read more »


Are seawalls correlated with lower property values in California?

Working paper by Arlan Brucal, Qingran Li, John Lynham

This paper investigates the impacts of seawalls on property values in San Diego and Santa Cruz. read more »





Building narratives to characterise uncertainty in regional climate change through expert elicitation

Research article by Suraje Dessai, Ajay Gajanan Bhave, Cathryn Birch, Declan Conway, Luis Garcia-Carreras, John Paul Gosling, Neha Mittal, David Stainforth

Knowledge about regional and local climate change can inform climate risk assessments and adaptation decisions.
