The report from the Workshop on physical modelling supporting a "storyline approach" is now available. The workshop, which took place in Oslo, Norway, in April 2019, discussed perspectives on the best practice of physical modelling to accompany narratives of high-impact extreme and compound events, as well as associated risks under climate change. The workshop report details discussions on physical climate storyline approaches, generic/sector-based approaches, storylines as evidence and wider perspectives on storylines.
