ClimaMeter is a rapid experimental framework for putting weather extremes in a climate perspective, developed by the ESTIMR team at the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (Institut Pierre Simon Laplace) in Paris-Saclay. ClimaMeter is led by Davide Faranda (CNRS & London Mathematical Laboratory), Mathieu Vrac (CNRS), Pascal Yiou (CEA-Saclay) & Robert Vautard (IPSL), in collaboration with Gabriele Messori (Uppsala University, Uppsala), Erika Coppola (International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste) and Tommaso Alberti (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Rome).
We provide an easily interpretable contextualisation of extreme weather immediately after the actual event, as well as a more technical description and discussion of the event with a slightly longer delay.
ClimaMeter scientific core group
The Scientific core group of ClimaMeter is composed of a consortium of international partners whose role is to select the extreme events to be analysed, perform the study, write the reports and answer press requests. We are open to collaboration! If you are a climate scientist and wish to join the team as an external collaborator, please contact one of the members of the Scientific core group.

Research Projects and Institutions linked to ClimaMeter
XAIDA brings together experts in artificial intelligence, statistics, and climate modeling. Together, they design new methods and apply them to recent high-impact events to examine their connections with climate change. Together we will design new methods and apply them to recent high-impact events to understand the role of climate change. Further, we will study if such events, or even more-intense ones, will occur in the future. We will collaborate with concerned stakeholders from different sectors to prepare risk assessment and adaptation strategies for extreme weather. Xaida has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101003469.
EDIPI (european weather Extremes: DrIvers, Predictability and Impacts) is an international consortium aiming to further our holistic understanding of temperature, precipitation (incl. drought) and surface wind extremes over Europe. One of EDIPI’s key goals is to train a cohort of Weather Extreme Experts, who combine a physical understanding of high-impact weather extremes with a practical knowledge of predictability tools and an appreciation of user-relevant information required by the private sector. EDIPI has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant No. 956396.
The CNRS project CROIRE creates a bridge between statistical physics, statistics, dynamical systems theory, and climate science to study high-impact persistent climate events such as heatwaves, cold spells, and cyclones triggered by extremely zonal or blocked conditions in mid-latitudes
