Join AIMES, Earth Commission, Future Earth, and the WCRP Safe Landing Climates Lighthouse Activity for the fifth webinar in a series that aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. This novel event will include presentations on ocean tipping points from world-leading researchers. Register to be kept up to date.
Helene Hewitt and Didier Swingedouw will moderate the event.
- Ocean tipping points – an overview – Christoph Heinze
- Recent insights on AMOC – Stefan Rahmstorf

About the series
This event is part of a series of online discussions aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. It supports efforts to increase consistency in treatment of tipping elements in the scientific community, develop a research agenda, and design joint experiments and ideas for a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project (TipMip).
This discussion series is a joint activity of the Analysis, Integration, and Modeling of the Earth System (AIMES) global research project of Future Earth, the Earth Commission Working Group 1 Earth and Human Systems Intercomparison Modelling Project (EHSMIP) under the Global Commons Alliance and the Safe Landing Climates Lighthouse Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP).
