Research brief: Pathways and pitfalls in extreme attribution

May 26, 2021 11:57 am Published by Comments Off on Research brief: Pathways and pitfalls in extreme attribution

In a recent CLEX study, published in Climatic Change, researchers discuss the choices taken at each step, which may affect the final outcome and usefulness of extreme event attribution analyses.

The past four months have seen the Heatwaves and Cold Air Outbreaks research program focus very much on improving our capacity to understand and help others in research and industry get an insight into the impact of extreme heat events.

Research brief: New protocol aims to improve the quality and communication of extreme event attribution

November 23, 2020 3:32 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: New protocol aims to improve the quality and communication of extreme event attribution

This paper aims to catalogue the steps the authors have found make up a successful framework for event attribution analyses. The hope is that this paper will be useful for those considering how to undertake such work themselves and to highlight some of the potential issues and pitfalls that can arise along the way.

MON02: THE ANTARCTIC OZONE HOLE AND AUSTRALIAN RAINFALL

August 6, 2020 3:47 pm Published by Comments Off on MON02: THE ANTARCTIC OZONE HOLE AND AUSTRALIAN RAINFALL

In this project you will investigate the competing effects the Antarctic ozone hole and increasing greenhouse gases have on the Australian summer season rainfall, using the latest climate models. These are now available on the National Computing Infrastructure (NCI) supercomputer and are being used as input into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report.

RP2 Heatwaves and cold air outbreaks report – August 2019

Extreme weather conditions and a changing climate are often recognised by their immediate effects. But as research coming out of the Heatwaves and Cold Air Outbreaks program has shown over the past four months, these events are often generated by distant influences and when they occur have further impact beyond their immediate vicinity.

Seminar: Making climate detection and attribution scientists redundant

Dáithí Stone National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, Wellington, New Zealand. Over the past couple of decades a large number of studies have diagnosed the contribution of emissions from human activities to observed climate trends, by confronting process-based expectations with long-term monitoring. Over the same period a much larger number of studies have diagnosed the contribution of observed climate changes to trends in various natural, managed, and human systems. For convenience and following IPCC terminology, we will refer to... View Article
