Contents Notes "The project will advance the science of integration and contribute to the development of a Tyndall Integrated Assessment Model (IAM), the Theme 1 flagship product, by investigating solutions to problems that arise at the interface between climate and impacts modules within an IAM. Our work will focus on the Tyndall IAM's climate module and on developing modules for water supply and flood protection services that will be suitable for use within the Tyndall IAM. These modules will be geographically resolved and global in scope. The aims and methods are: (i) to apply current Tyndall work on changes in climate variability/extremes to an impact module through the building of impact response functions that incorporate such changes in their inputs; (ii) to extend, through analysis of appropriate climate model simulations, a pattern-scaling based climate module to allow changing climate patterns under scenarios that reduce/stabilise the increase in emissions, and for cases where an abrupt thermohaline circulation change is convolved with a transient climate warming; and to then apply these to the building of impact response functions; and (iii) to express impact response functions in economic terms, by relating impact to cost of providing water supply and flood protection services; prototype damage functions will also be developed that include the costs and benefits of the generic adaptive actions.
