Welcome to CLIMADA Petals!

Welcome to CLIMADA Petals!#


CLIMADA stands for CLIMate ADAptation and is a probabilistic natural catastrophe impact model, that also calculates averted damage (benefit) thanks to adaptation measures of any kind (from grey to green infrastructure, behavioural, etc.).

CLIMADA is primarily developed and maintained by the Weather and Climate Risks Group at ETH Zürich.

This is the documentation of the CLIMADA Petals module. Its purpose is generating different types of hazards and more specialized applications than available in the CLIMADA Core module.


CLIMADA Petals builds on top of CLIMADA Core and is not a standalone module. Before you start working with Petals, please check out the documentation of the CLIMADA Core module, in particular the installation instructions.
