Tools

The Climate Prospectus team is developing tools that support improved climate risks analysis by the research community as a whole, including a platform that others can use to improve and broaden our assessment as new information becomes available, or to focus in more depth on the threat to specific geographic regions or economic sectors.

The Distributed Meta-Analysis System (DMAS)

The Distributed Meta-Analysis System is an online tool to help scientists analyze, explore, combine, and communicate results from existing empirical studies. It’s primary purpose it to support meta-analyses, by providing a database for empirically estimated models and methods to integrate their results. The current version supports a range of tools that are useful for analyzing empirical climate impact results, but we hope to expand its applicability to other fields including social sciences, medicine, ecology, and geophysics.
