Science for Citizens "Can We Climate Proof Our Insurance?"

Event Date: 
October 13, 2015 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

One of aspects of climate change is the escalating frequency and intensity of extreme weather events. CBL scientists have been studying precipitation thresholds that trigger an increased number of house insurance claims, and how many more days with such extreme precipitation we can expect to see in the future. In this seminar, Dr. Slava Lyubchich will show the results from statistical models that forecast how the future insurance risks might change based on alternative climate scenarios. All seminars are free and open to the public. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Please contact Sarah Brzezinski at 410-326-7460, or brzezins@umces.edu with any questions.
