AIR is taking bold steps to fundamentally change the way we quantify insurance and other financial risks due to climate change. An AIR Current by Dr. Jayanta Guin, AIR’s Chief Research Officer, is the first in a yearlong series that will describe our motivation and approach. In a very real sense, we should be thinking of climate change as a new peril, and the models must be capable of answering different kinds of questions.
Subsequent articles in the series will cover topics ranging from the fundamentals of climate and climate variability, to what climate models can and cannot do, to the latest thinking on the contributions of machine learning techniques, to what insights we might gain into the potential impacts of climate change on the locations, frequencies, and intensities of extreme events around the globe.
