About this event

This event is part of a series of online discussions aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. It supports efforts to increase consistency in 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).

This discussion series 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 Lighthouse Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP).

Join AIMES, Earth Commission and WCRP for the sixth webinar in a series that aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. This novel event will include presentations on monsoon tipping points from world leading researchers. Register to be kept up to date.

Martin Claussen will moderate this event.

  • South Asian Monsoon tipping (tbc) – Ashwin Seshadri
  • African Monsoon and potential greening of the Sahara (tbc) – Francesco Pausata
  • Q&A/ Discussion

The talks will be followed by 20 minutes of formal discussions and, for those who wish to stay on, a further 25 minutes of informal discussions on the topic. This event is free of charge, but please register. The event will be recorded.
