Milutin Milankovitch 130 Anniversary Symposium
Climate Change at the Eve of the Second Decade of the Century



To commemorate 130 years of the birth of Milutin Milankovitch, founder of the mathematical approach to the study of climate change, Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SASA) is organizing an international symposium, in Belgrade, 22-25 September 2009

Milutin Milankovitch Anniversary Symposium:
Climate Change at the Eve of the Second Decade of the Century

Inferences from paleoclimate, and regional aspects

The rapid global climate change in progress is to be reviewed, including some historical aspects recalling the role of Milankovitch; followed by invited and contributed papers addressing recent developments in paleoclimate, the use of paleo data to asses the future climate under various greenhouse gas scenarios, and the regional climate change, focusing on its basic modeling issues and on the impacts in the Southeastern Europe-Mediterranean area. This last segment is to include sessions on Climate Change and Hydrological Extremes, and Ecohydrology for Managing Climate Extremes at the River Basin Level. The segment is expected to highlight the contributions less developed countries can make, and foster capacity building in the region, as felt appropriate in view of the venue of the event. Impact of climate change on water resources of the Southeastern Europe-Mediterranean area, and adaptation to expected climate change will be addressed within this last segment of the symposium as well.
