Session Description:
What is the value added of climate science and the climate scientist in climate adaptation planning? As decision-makers grapple with understanding and preparing for challenges such as climate change, the magnitude of information, associated uncertainties, and non-predictive nature of this deep uncertainty begs the question of what role the climate expert plays in the decision-making process. The session will begin with stage setting presentations on topics such as weather generators versus process based climate modeling, concluding with a facilitated debate and a community discussion regarding the value added of climate science and the climate scientist in climate adaptation and decision making under deep uncertainty.
