The scientific presentations at the SISC Firs Annual Conference are split in three parallel sessions.
Advances in climate science
Theories, observations, and models of the dynamics of atmospheric and oceanic fluids: climate change, rapid environmental changes, forecasts and projections, mesoscale processes and extreme events.
Implications on ecosystem services
Analysis, projections, models and evaluation of climate change impact and extremes on natural ecosystems and agriculture.
Changes in land-use and land-cover, also due to extreme hydrological and hydrogeological events
Adaptation and mitigation strategies for hydrological and hydrogeological risks.
Adaptation and mitigation strategies for the management of water resources.
Climate policy and economic assessment
Translate the interactions between climate and the processes concerning ecosystems into economic values.
Plan and evaluate strategies for adaptation and mitigation policies.
Assess the impacts of climate extremes and climate change on public health.
Climate change and urbanization: implications, feedback and evaluation of strategies and of public choices.
Implications of climate change on cultural heritage preservation, analysis and assessment of the vulnerability of cultural heritage related to climate change and potential strategies for adaptation and mitigation.
