Birkel and Climate Reanalyzer featured in Press Herald

The Portland Press Herald published a feature story about Sean Birkel, Maine state climatologist and assistant professor with a joint appointment in University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the UMaine Climate Change Institute, and his work involving the UMaine Climate Change Institute’s Climate Reanalyzer. “It’s a difficult thing to do,” Birkel said. “You have to do a lot of coding. You need the data from all your official sources, you need scripts to visualize it and it has to be put on the web page in such a way that a layperson can easily understand it.”
