"Extreme weather events"

Kaplun building, Room No. 200
There has been much talk about the effect of warming on extreme weather events, but these are hard to characterize and almost no one has done anything quantitative. It is the opposite of the issue of the temperature records, where there has been an enormous amount of work. Our work is almost trivial (except for working with corrupted historical data), but the result appears novel, although limited.
