CONVEX: CONVective EXtremes

Using observational evidence and process understanding to improve predictions of extreme rainfall change

CONVEX is a three and a half year project which brings together UK climate modelling, statistical modelling, Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) scientists and the impacts community to work together to improve our understanding of the characteristics extreme rainfall and its underlying causative processes.  It will provide a better understanding, essential for improved model projections of extreme rainfall change under global warming.
