The accelerating effects of global climate change—including destructive wildfires, intensifying tropical storms, severe drought and coastal flooding—pose major risks to civic infrastructure, the natural environment and human health. 

To address these challenges, the Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation (IMSI) at the University of Chicago is hosting a five-day interdisciplinary workshop starting March 1 that brings together leaders in mathematics, statistics and atmospheric sciences to begin developing tools to help guide responses to extreme weather events at a local, regional and national scale.

The latest workshop brings together leading researchers from across the U.S., Canada and the U.K. to present on a variety of topics related to modeling and predicting the impacts of climate change.
