futureheatwaves: Find, Characterize, and Explore Extreme Events in Climate Projections

Inputs a directory of climate projection files and, for each, identifies and characterizes heat waves for specified study locations. The definition used to identify heat waves can be customized. Heat wave characterizations include several metrics of heat wave length, intensity, and timing in the year. The heat waves that are identified can be explored using a function to apply user-created functions across all generated heat wave files.This work was supported in part by grants from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (R00ES022631), the National Science Foundation (1331399), and the Colorado State University Vice President for Research.
