The Extreme-WeCaRe group just has been established in 2013 as one of the outcomes of the Partnership for Enhanced Engagement in research (PEER) Science Grant led by Dr. Heri Kuswanto. The group consists of scientists (mostly early career researchers) conducting researches dealing with application of statistics for extreme weather and climate such as forecasting extreme weather events, exploring the dynamic of meteorological pattern, etc. But of course, we welcome any other topics related to extremes.
Extreme weather and climate events (e.g. heavy rainfall, drought, heat waves, etc.) have led to vulnerability of society and become major issue in Indonesia. Therefore, we CARE about this. Besides aiming to give contribution to the development of science, the activities carried out by the group are devoted also to contribute to the human development.
The Extreme-WeCaRe group is affiliated under the Research center for Earth, Disaster and Climate Change of the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) Surabaya-Indonesia. We gratefully acknowledge the support from NSF-USAID for the realization of this website.
We CaRe about Extreme, let join us if you CaRe too!
