RAIN Dublin Workshop

The RAIN (Risk Analysis of Infrastructure Networks in Response to Extreme Weather Events) project organised a workshop at Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) on the 9th of November, 2015, to identify and analyse the most probable extreme climatological phenomena affecting Europe infrastructure based on previous events.

RESILENS was represented at this workshop with the aim of grasping the state of the art in extreme weather risks modelling, vulnerability assessments and thresholds which could potentially be harnessed and incorporated in the proposed RESILENS tools and guidelines for critical infrastructures (CI).

One of the workshop objectives was to assess the frequency of weather hazards throughout Europe, for both the present and future climate. This analysis, which was conducted by means of weather modelling, enables the estimation of the probability of occurrence of these events in the future.
