  • Identify and catalogue   extremes in observed and modelled climate data.
  • Assess future changes in climate extremes using Extreme Value Theory.
  • Assess the impact of     changes in extremes.
  • Communicate the results to stakeholders.

MICE is part of a co-operative cluster of projects exploring future changes in extreme events in response to global warming. The other members of the cluster are STARDEX and PRUDENCE. This research is highly relevant to current climate related problems in Europe.
