Universidad Complutense de Madrid
UCM participates in CLINT through a research group of the GEODESPAL Department (Geodynamics, Stratigraphy and Paleontology) of the Faculty of Geological Sciences. The research group of Hydrogeology and Environment (Hydroamb) brings together 15 researchers. Hydroamb is very active in multidisciplinary research related to the management of natural hazards from the perspectives of assessment of vulnerability, quantification of impacts, and risk management. Within CLINT, the UCM’s primary tasks are the assessment of local user knowledge in Spain’s arid hotspot to support the work on detection, causation, and attribution; the development of a prototype of Climate Services and the associated impact model to demonstrate to case study users the potential of AI-augmented atmospheric datasets; and the establishment of the benchmark on extreme event climate service usage.
