Gro’s Climate Variation Index measures the frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events in a given region. Regions with lower variation tend to have more consistent weather patterns, while regions with higher variation tend to experience more extreme weather events.
Customers Use the Model to
- Identify regions that have the largest and smallest variations in weather to inform operations and strategic planning
- Analyze how incidence of extreme weather events has changed over time in a given region
Why It Matters
The index shows how predictable weather variability in a given region is, and the change in frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events in a given region over time. This allows Gro users to determine which regions are experiencing more extreme weather events, possibly due to climate change. This is helpful for designing long-term sustainability strategies that take potential climate impacts into account.
