Global climate models can tell us a lot about changes in large scale climates. However, some important impacts of the global climate such as an increase or decrease in extreme weather events depend strongly on local changes, especially in the water cycle on small hydrological scales. Weatherathome.org runs regional climate models embedded in a global model on thousands of volunteers’ computers across the world, providing the detail and statistics to study weather under climate change.
