An event entitled 'Handling uncertainty in weather and climate predictions with applications to health, agronomy, hydrology, energy and economics' will take place on 4 and 5 October 2012 in Buckinghamshire, UK.

Uncertainty is a term used in subtly different ways in a number of fields, including physics, philosophy, statistics, economics, finance, insurance, psychology, sociology, engineering and information science. It applies to predictions of future events, to physical measurements already made, or to the unknown. The weather is a typical example of uncertainty.

The handling of uncertainty in science with a focus on weather and climate predictions and downstream application will be the theme of this conference. The event will be an opportunity for attendees to discuss these questions, and present different points of view and methods on handling uncertainty in climate changes and its repercussions to other fields such as health, agronomy, hydrology, energy and economics.For further information, please visit: http://royalsociety.org/events/2012/uncertainty-weather-climate/
