CASCADE: Calibrated and Systematic Characterization, Attribution, and Detection of Extremes

Risks of extreme weather events pose some of the greatest hazards to society and the environment. This project advances the nation’s ability to identify and project climate extremes and advance scientific capabilities in climate analysis. Researchers are investigating whether and how current extreme events are affected by global climate change and how these effects will be amplified by future climate change.
