DAMOCLES (Understanding and Modelling Compound Climate and Weather Events)


DAMOCLES is a project funded by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST). Compound Events are high-impact events whose causes or effects show a complex combination of factors and pose major challenges to risk assessment and management. Current climate and impact modelling efforts are very limited in their ability to model Compound Events, making it difficult to design appropriate adaptation strategies. DAMOCLES will (a) identify key process and variable combinations underpinning Compound Events; (b) describe the available statistical methods for modelling dependence in time, space, and between multiple variables; (c) identify data requirements needed to document, understand, and simulate Compound Events, and (d) propose an analysis framework to improve the assessment of Compound Events.
