Groupe de Travail Climat - Mécanique statistique



Le Groupe de Travail Climat - Mecanique Statistique a été créé par l'équipe ESTIMR (Extrèmes : Statistiques, Impacts et Regionalisations) du Laboratoire LSCE et l'équipe SphYNX du  SPEC avec l'objectif de promouvoir les échanges entre les chercheurs qui travaillent à l'interface de ces deux sujets.

La participation est libre, les rencontres sont très informelles. Pour plus d'informations contacter: davide.faranda[at]



La prochaine réunion du GT Climat - Méca stat aura lieu le 23 Novembre 2018 de 10h30 dans la salle  1129 bat 714 ICE, Orme des Merisiers"

23/11/2018 Ted Shepherd: "Ethics and the construction of regional climate-change information"


"Although there is high confidence in thermodynamic aspects of climate change (warming, sea-level rise, increased humidity, melting of ice), the levels of confidence concerning dynamical aspects of climate change associated with atmospheric circulation (monsoons, storm tracks, subsidence zones) are much lower. Yet atmospheric circulation will strongly mediate climate impacts at the regional scale. By employing the ‘confidence’ framework, which seeks to predict what will happen, climate science often finds itself in something of a straightjacket when it comes to climate change impacts at the regional scale. This has ethical implications, because the focus on avoiding Type 1 errors (false discoveries) to ensure reliability raises the prospect of committing Type 2 errors (missed warnings).But at the regional scale, where information on climate change has to be combined with many other factors affecting vulnerability and exposure — most of which are highly uncertain — the relevant question is not “What will happen?” but rather “What is the impact of particular actions under an uncertain regional climate change?” It is argued here that the storyline approach to climate change — the identification of physically self-consistent, plausible pathways — permits such a re-framing of the question and thereby can unlock the Gordian Knot of regional climate-change information."

The presentation will be given in english.
