A set of case study regions have been identified for our investigation of extreme weather in the UK. Our research will be concentrated on materials and events relating to these case study regions that together will form the first multi-regional climate history of the UK. There are rich and diverse archival collections available for each area yet these have yet to be investigated for climate history purposes. Exploring the implications of unusual weather events for communities and individuals in each of these regions and through time will provide insight into the way in which geographical context and changing socio-economic and political circumstance influences relative impacts and response.
Based on previous research and Defra’s 2012 Climate Change Risk Assessments (CCRAs), each area is one currently recognised to be vulnerable to climate change and extreme events.
