Gro’s Climate Variation Index measures the volatility of temperature and precipitation over the course of a year in a given region. Regions with lower variation tend to have more consistent weather patterns, while regions with higher variation have wide variability of seasons or tend to experience more extreme weather events.
Customers Use the Model to
- Identify regions that have the widest and smallest variations in climate to inform operations and strategic planning
- Analyze how the dispersion of climate conditions has changed over time in a given region Related Analytics Precipitation Variation
Why It Matters
The index shows how climate conditions vary over time, allowing Gro users to determine which regions are experiencing more extreme weather, possibly due to climate change. This is helpful for designing long-term sustainability strategies that take potential climate impacts into account.
