These billion-dollar disasters are expected to continue to increase over the next few decades due to climate change, putting stress on infrastructure, institutions, communities, and people. Predictions of future climate change are critical to preparing for impacts. Most planning for future impacts has been based on mid- and lower-end predictions from earth system models, but impacts and implications for society could be much worse under extreme climate change scenarios. On December 8, 2022, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM ET, the Geographical and Geospatial Sciences Committee of the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine will hold a meeting that addresses the implications of extreme climate change scenarios and the role novel geospatial data sources and analytics can play to improve understanding for basic research, policy, and responses. This meeting is free, open to the public and available online.
