Modelling the Impact of Climate Extremes

The MICE (Modelling the Impact of Climate Extremes) project analysed the effects of expected climate changes in Europe on the basis of output data from climate models. It focused on extreme temperatures, rainfall and storms, as well as their impacts on forests, energy use, and tourism. The results of MICE provide a baseline for future research on climate extremes and for managing the consequences of climate change.
