Translating Weather Extremes into the Future – a case for Norway

TWEX will provide stakeholders with a realistic representation of high-impact events under projected future climate conditions by performing a holistic analysis that considers physical hazard, exposure and vulnerability in a Norwegian context. We take a novel approach, which produces downscaled scenarios tailored to a specific region and stakeholder, and which maintains the operational chain from high-resolution global Earth system model simulations to regional dynamical downscaling with numerical weather prediction models to impact assessment by the stakeholder.
