Climate change means more extreme weather catastrophes. The ability to anticipate and prepare for extreme weather, not just in terms of a single event from a single peril but also in terms of a series of such events over an entire year, can have widespread benefits to society.
And yet, we’re often caught off guard, or at least under-prepared, for many extreme weather events, leading the public to believe they were completely unpredictable—so-called black swans.
This Emerging Issues webinar was held on March 22, 2022, and featured Dr. Rainer Lohmann, Professor at the University of Rhode Island and Director of STEEP (Sources, Transport, Exposure & Effects of PFAS), a research center sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are an increasingly concerning subject, especially as more research about this class of chemicals comes to light.
The presentation highlights current trends in PFAS research, with a particular focus on how PFAS behave in the marine environment. Dr. Lohmann touches upon the chemistry of PFAS, their health effects, and current efforts to regulate, replace, or remediate PFAS.
An ongoing research project from Verisk's Emerging Issues and Verisk’s extreme event modeling division is helping to shed light on this important question. By analyzing past issues for clues and applying a novel analytical framework to contemporary events, this research can help insurers identify trends that can create costly systemic liability events.
