Near-Surface Salinity as Nature’s Rain Gauge to Detect Human Influence on the Tropical Water Cycle
AbstractChanges in the global water cycle are expected as a result of anthropogenic climate change, but large uncertainties exist in how these changes will be manifest regionally. This is especiallyExpand

Application of regularised optimal fingerprinting to attribution. Part I: method, properties and idealised analysis
Optimal fingerprinting has been the most widely used method for climate change detection and attribution over the last decade. The implementation of optimal fingerprinting often involves projectingExpand

Towards a better understanding of changes in wintertime cold extremes over Europe: a pilot study with CNRM and IPSL atmospheric models
Recent winter seasons have evidenced that global warming does not exclude the occurrence of exceptionally cold and/or snowy episodes in the Northern mid-latitudes. The expected rarefaction of suchExpand

Detection of global runoff changes: results from observations and CMIP5 experiments
This paper assesses the detectability of changes in global streamflow. First, a statistical detection method is applied to observed (no missing data which represent 42% of global discharge) andExpand

Trends in Global and Basin-Scale Runoff over the Late Twentieth Century: Methodological Issues and Sources of Uncertainty
AbstractWhile human influence has been detected in global and regional surface air temperature, detection–attribution studies of direct (i.e., land use and water management) and indirect (i.e.,Expand

Estimating the Transient Climate Response from Observed Warming
AbstractThe transient climate response (TCR) quantifies the warming expected during a transient doubling of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. Many previous studies quantifying the ob...

Detecting the anthropogenic influences on recent changes in ocean carbon uptake
Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions have modified the rate at which oceans have absorbed atmospheric CO2 over the last centuries through rising atmospheric CO2 and modifications in climate.Expand

Adaptation of the optimal fingerprint method for climate change detection using a well-conditioned covariance matrix estimate
The “optimal fingerprint” method, usually used for detection and attribution studies, requires to know, or, in practice, to estimate the covariance matrix of the internal climate variability. In thisExpand
