BRACE Activities

BRACE authors have given talks and posters at numerous venues. A video of an NCAR seminar presentation by Brian O'Neill on the BRACE project is also available to watch.

Several BRACE authors also presented their work at the international scientific conference, "Our Common Future under Climate Change," in Paris July 7-10, 2015. Building on the results of IPCC 5th Assessment Report (AR5), the meeting addressed key issues concerning climate change in the broader context of global change and offered an opportunity to discuss solutions for both mitigation and adaptation issues. For detailed information on the 2015 Paris meeting, visit the conference event page.

Further BRACE Work

Building on work from Done et al. (2016), the authors are applying their index of hurricane damage potential to real-time seasonal forecasting of hurricane damage. Published through NCAR's Capacity Center for Climate and Weather Extremes (C3WE), the seasonal damage forecasts support a major part of the C3WE mission to create actionable tools for improved management of and planning for weather and climate extremes.
