RECEIPT

Visualizing storylines of climate impacts

Communicating the impacts of climate change to a wide audience is a demanding task, yet of great importance to society. Quantifying causal chains emerging from extreme events in a warming climate is often impeded by the growth of unknown parameters in modeling socio-economic responses. One method to obtain insights into the complex consequences of climate change is the use of physical climate storylines. They allow us to understand and describe the unfolding of climate-induced extreme events, making impacts of global warming tangible to a wide range of potential stakeholders. The RECEIPT project applies the concept of climate storylines to remote climate events that impact European socio-economic sectors.

Whereas these storylines are often published in scientific journals, we at the Netherlands eScience Center intend to create a new dissemination channel for a wider audience: the storyline visualizer will serve as a platform to communicate the impacts of global warming to a wide variety of potential stakeholders.
