CROCUS: Community Research on Climate and Urban Science

This Urban Integrated Field Laboratory studies urban climate change and its implications for environmental justice in the Chicago region. The CROCUS team conducts observational science and creates highly accurate climate models. This information will lead to new insights on current and future urban climate challenges and will inform future actions for managing and adapting to climate change at the street, neighborhood, and regional levels
