European Wilderness Society


     · “...Environmental extremes are responsible for thousands of casualties and billions of € in damages in Europe annually. Societal risks associated with many of these extremes are poorly understood in today’s climate – even more so as climate changes. Knowledge gaps arise from the inadequacy of existing models, which are unable to capture key physical processes and hence cannot fully incorporate an expanding palette of observations. ExtremeEarth will deliver the methods needed to achieve a step change in simulation accuracy and data integration, to allow scientists to understand the drivers of extremes and application communities to anticipate their impact. ExtremeEarth will develop the technologies for a required thousand-fold increase in computation, and fundamentally redesign workflows to dynamically expose the full information content of a new generation of models and data to users.”

       insight. Our work spans nine research areas and covers both short-term policy issues and long-
