futureheatwaves: Find, Characterize, and Explore Heat Waves in Climate...

Description

Description

futureheatwaves takes a directory of climate projection files and, for each, identifies and characterizes all examples of a specified type of extreme event. The definition used to identify extreme events can be customized. Characterizations include several metrics of event length, intensity, and timing in the year. Extreme events can be explored by applying custom 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.
