Calling all climate experts: abstracts wanted

In response to the recently released IPCC 6th Assessment Report, which found that the physical basis of climate change has forcefully foregrounded how climate extremes and natural disasters will increasingly be part of our daily and seasonal lives, Dr Ania Kotarba and Dr Alessandro Antonello, both from the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, are calling for abstract submissions to be a part of an upcoming forum they are convening.

Archaeology, History, Indigenous & Heritage responses to the IPCC 6th Assessment Report and agendas for climate research and adaptation (AHIH vs IPCC) will be held on Tuesday 16 November,  and aims to bring together archaeologists, historians and cultural heritage practitioners working on climate change and sustainability themes to respond to the recent IPCC report and to explore various ways in which communities have adapted to new, often inferior, conditions in the past.

Organisers are accepting submissions of abstracts for 10-15 minute presentations for any of the following sessions; general, adaptation and sustainability; heat, including increased air and ocean temperatures, heatwaves, droughts, catastrophic fires, aridification, desertification and water, including flooding, sea level rise, glacier and permafrost melt and loss of sea ice, storm surges, coastal erosion, seasonality changes – i.e. monsoon winds.

Please submit your abstract to Dr Kotarba and Dr Antonello by COB Monday 1 November. More details about the event will be available shortly.
