Asheville is an Epicenter for Climate Science

Have you ever had to sort through the drawers of a dresser, finding it a bit stressful? Is cleaning out a closet a little overwhelming? Does the thought of sorting through all of the items in your garage, or your attic give you a headache? 

Then imagine sorting through, making sense of and organizing 25 petabytes (that's the equivalent of 25 million gigabytes) of data in various forms: charts, graphs, maps and even journal entries. 

Demonstrating Climate Change

Teachers might say that it’s one thing to tell students information in a lecture format. But it's another to expect them to understand and retain that information. Many students can better do this if teachers can show or demonstrate the information to them as well. Some folks call it active learning.

That thinking is what prompted the creation of the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit.
