Scientists Develop a Better Way to Identify Extreme Weather in Climate Models


A team of scientists from several national laboratories, including Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, are collaborating to develop techniques to understand and predict how climate change will influence extreme weather events. Using considerable data sets generated by climate models, this group of researchers have applied state-of-the-art high-performance computing and data-mining resources to specific climate scenarios. This research was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science under the Visual Data Exploration and Analysis of Ultra-Large Climate Data Project. The full article is available here.
