BurningquestionExtreme-weather climate modeling conducted by ESD’s climate scientists, most notably Bill Collins, support the high-performance computing results discussed by CRD’s Michael Wehner, in this second installment of the Lab’s Ask a Scientist video series. Please feel free to send in questions about heat waves, extreme weather, and climate change—Wehner will answer some of those questions in a follow-up video coming soon. Go to:
