Professor Sue Grimmond has been presenting her work on climate resilience to audiences in South Korea and Thailand during July and August.

In July Professor Grimmond was invited to give lead presentations at the ‘Building Urban Climate Change Resilience in Asia’ workshop in Bangkok in July run by USAID. In August she presented a workshop on Urban and Rural Meteorology 2012 organised by the Korean Meteorological Association & the National Institute of Meteorological Research on Jeju Island, South Korea.  

Both events focused on the latest approaches in the field and strategies for adapting to and mitigating climate change in urban areas.  While she was on Jeju Island there were two Typhoons (Belovan – one of the most severe for 10- 20 years in Korea and then Tenbin). While in South Korea she also gave a talk to the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, Yonsei University, Seoul.
