Baltic Earth Workshop on

Natural hazards and extreme events in the Baltic Sea region

Finnish Meteorological Institute, Dynamicum, Helsinki, 30-31 January 2014

Scope Venue Aftermath

Thank you for a pleasant and successful Baltic Earth Workshop!

This 2-day workshop at the FMI in Helsinki was dedicated to the Baltic Earth Grand Challenge "Natural hazards and extreme events in the Baltic Sea region".

The overarching aim of this Baltic Earth workshop was to review our understanding of extreme events in the past, present and future and to identify research needs. A concrete goal was to gather a group of researchers who could form a community to collaborate in this field in the future.

The first day was dedicated to oral presentations which spanned a range of extreme events in the Baltic Sea region. The day was opened by Yrjö Viisanen, Research Director of the Finnish Meteorological Institute, who gave an overview over the FMI´s research activities. The presentations were of very high quality and mostly were of review character. Please find the presentations as pdf in the download section below. The poster session in the evening was introduced by short 2-slide presentations by poster authors (also in the download section below).

The second day was dedicated to working group breakout session. The participants were divided into three groups: Temperature extremes, Precipitation events, and Storm Surges/Sea level. Each group was given a template of questions as guidelines for discussion, and the outcomes were presented by the group rapporteurs in plenary, followed by an open discussion. A summary of the discussion and the notes presented by the rapporteurs can be found in the Workshop Summary below.

We would like to thank our local host Jari Haapala and the FMI for the use of this fabulous venue and a light dinner following the poster session.
