Frequency of Extreme Weather Events Model user’s guide
Garton, Byron M.
Extreme weather events such as droughts and extended periods of high temperatures can have a negative impact on future force readiness and effectiveness. This model attempts to predict the likelihood of extreme weather events by calculating probabilities for several scenarios from future climate projections for various Department of Defense (DoD) installations. This document describes the process of executing the Frequency of Extreme Weather Events Model, as it exists at the time of this writing, within the common computational environment established under the software integration effort of the Integrated Climate Assessment for Army Enterprise Planning work package.
