Assessing Risks

Simulations of real-world scenarios can aid climate change adaptation planning. Visualize and analyze long-term effects from global warming-related impacts and disasters such as floods, wildfires, storm surges, and droughts. Finding hidden vulnerabilities and patterns in your data is the first step in climate change planning.
