“And now everyone lift their watermelon over their head…!” Click above for recent presentation of results from our C-ROADS simulation in Asheville North Carolina, home of NCDC — the country’s largest repository of climate data. The model images are difficult to see. For clearer versions, check out the similar model runs here in our presentation […]
