NCAR researchers are collaborating with researchers at ETH in Z├╝rich to estimate the economic impact of tropical cyclones using NCAR's Community Earth System Model (CESM) climate model and a tropical cyclone damage model. This work accounts for the effects of both climate change and the built environment using high resolution climate models and a detailed model of damages to the built environment.
