Maine Monitor reports on Climate Reanalyzer’s role in reporting extreme heat

The Maine Monitor featured the work of the University of Maine Climate Change Institute’s Climate Reanalyzer in reporting about recent record-breaking high temperatures. “The whole point of Climate Reanalyzer is, it brings together a variety of weather and climate data sets, and it’s used to explore those data sets — and there’s really not interpretation with that. I never thought … that seemingly an innocuous daily temperature page would capture so much attention,” said Sean Birkel, Maine state climatologist and assistant professor with a joint appointment in University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the UMaine Climate Change Institute.
