Climate Models: Horizontal Resolution, Simulation Quality (

CASCADE-Calibrated and Systematic Characterization, Attribution, and Detection of Extremes project is multidivisional, collaborative work at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, drawing upon expertise of scientists in the lab’s Computational Research Division and Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division as well as the University of California, Berkeley, and University of California, Davis, campuses.

Researchers are investigating whether and how current hurricanes are affected by global climate change and how these effects will be amplified by future climate change.

CASCADE is developing the following capabilities to accelerate the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) research portfolio in climate extremes and to advance scientific capabilities in climate analysis and is sponsored by DOE’s Regional and Global Climate Modeling program.
