UCL Geographers’ research prominent in IPCC Report

Richard Taylor and Julian Thompson on the impact of climate change on freshwater resources

UCL Geographers’ research prominent in IPCC Report

The recently published 5th Assessment Report of the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), prominently features research assessing the impact of climate change on freshwater resources led by UCL Geography’s Professor Richard Taylor and Dr Julian Thompson.

Their work quantifying uncertainty in the projected impacts of climate change on river discharge, and its seasonality in basins on five continents, is cited repeatedly in Chapter 3, and comprises a central figure (3.5) in the Report.

The research was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) QUEST (Quantifying the Earth System) programme and also involved a former member of UCL Geography academic staff, Professor Martin Todd, now at the University of Sussex, and a Post-Doctoral Scientist, Dr Daniel Kingston, now at the University of Otago, New Zealand.
