    WeatherShiftTM toolset expanded

    Arup has partnered with Argos Analytics, LLC to expand the WeatherShift™ toolset, originally announced May 2014. The WeatherShift™ toolset takes projections from multiple global climate models and “shifts” present day weather files based on those projections. This can be used in design to test an urban or building environment for performance in a predicted future climate.
