With ClimaMeter the graphic and detailed representation of the natural or anthropic origin of the effects of the climate change event
As the world faces the growing challenges of climate change, an international team of researchers has launched a cutting-edge platform to directly address one of the most pressing questions: the extent to which climate change modifies extreme weather events?
The recent report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlighted the urgent need to address global climate change, highlighting an acceleration of extreme phenomena and their impact on vital ecosystems and on society.
In this framework, the team of researchers from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), in collaboration with the
"The main objective of the project is to provide a rapid analysis of the role of climate change and natural variability in an extreme meteorological event, with particular attention to specific phenomena such as cyclones, heat waves and intense rainfall”, explains Tommaso Alberti, researcher at INGV. “This allows for clear and precise information on the influences of anthropogenic emissions on the extreme event, offering a rapid perspective immediately after the event, as well as a more technical description and discussion of the event once it has concluded".
ClimaMeter, with a graphical representation, provides a clear and detailed vision of the natural or anthropic origin of the extreme event. In doing so, you offer a easy to use tool to understand the size often underestimated of climate change.
"The newly launched platform represents a significant step towards a deeper understanding of the link between climate change and extreme weather events. We feed the database with extreme events that have occurred in recent years and we hope to provide, using real-time data on pressure at the earth's surface, wind speed, amount of precipitation and temperature, obtained from

"In the future, the platform can be used to provide fundamental information for the development of mitigation strategies and adaptation to the constantly evolving effects of climate change", concludes Alberti.
