Climate change factor

A Guide To Climate Change Impacts, On Scotland’s Historic Environment, published by Historic Environment Scotland in October 2019, defines climate change as: ‘Expected change in climate that will affect the severity and occurrence rate of a hazard.’

It defines as a climate change factor as: ‘Short code detailing the relevant climate and hazard variables (e.g. temperature, rainfall, flooding, extreme weather, sea-level rise).’
