Variability in urban land-use results in microclimatic variability across a city that is not picked up by government weather station networks. Crowdsourced weather stations can fill these gaps.

Research brief: IPCC review reveals climate impacts occur at lower temperatures than previously thought.October 19, 2020 1:59 pm Comments Off on Research brief: IPCC review reveals climate impacts occur at lower temperatures than previously thought.
An international review of IPCC reports since 2001 has found that as the science has improved with each report, a trend has appeared showing climate related impacts like heatwaves, the collapse of the West Antarctic ice sheet and coral bleaching are likely to occur at lower global mean temperatures than estimated in earlier reports.
New work published in Nature Communications develops a correction method that ensures the probability of climate extremes in the model simulations are consistent with real-world observations. In addition, it also corrects the rate of the long-term changes and the inter-annual variability so that it is consistent with observations.
