#' Find, Characterize, and Explore Heat Waves in Climate Projections
#'
#' \code{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.
