Members of PAGES' new Extremes Interactive Activity will hold a lunchtime session during the 5th Open Science Meeting in Zaragoza, Spain, on 10 May 2017.

The meeting will be held in the auditorium from 13:00-14:30 and lunch will be provided.

Description

The goal of this open meeting is to discuss the current research on extreme events in the PAGES community, to identify the activities such as workshops or review papers that would allow a better integration of existing studies and contribute to new developments and to propose actions that would reinforce the visibility and the impact of the scientific results, including for stakeholders.
