Future extreme events in European climate: an exploration of regional climate model projections
This paper presents an overview of changes in the extreme events that are most likely to affect Europe in forthcoming decades. A variety of diagnostic methods are used to determine how heat waves,Expand
The 2003 heat wave in Europe: A shape of things to come? An analysis based on Swiss climatological data and model simulations
[1] The 2003 heat wave that affected much of Europe from June to September bears a close resemblance to what many regional climate models are projecting for summers in the latter part of the 21stExpand
Climatic Change in Mountain Regions: A Review of Possible Impacts
This paper addresses a number of issues related to current and future climatic change and its impacts on mountain environments and economies, focusing on the `Mountain Regions' Chapter 13 of AgendaExpand
Climate change impacts on glaciers and runoff in Tien Shan (Central Asia)
Climate-driven changes in glacier-fed streamflow regimes have direct implications on freshwater supply, irrigation and hydropower potential. Reliable information about current and future glaciationExpand
CLIMATIC CHANGE AT HIGH ELEVATION SITES: AN OVERVIEW
This paper provides an overview of climatic changes that have been observed during the past century at certain high-elevation sites, and changes in a more distant past documented by a variety ofExpand
21st century climate change in the European Alps--a review.
TLDR
Warming will probably be associated with changes in the seasonality of precipitation, global radiation, and relative humidity, and more intense precipitation extremes and flooding potential in the colder part of the year, and there is indication for droughts to become more severe in the future.

Mountain Weather and Climate: A General Overview and a Focus on Climatic Change in the Alps
Meteorological and climatic processes in mountain regions play a key role in many environmental systems, in particular the quantity and quality of water that influences both aquatic ecosystems andExpand
VARIATIONS OF SNOW DEPTH AND DURATION IN THE SWISS ALPS OVER THE LAST 50 YEARS: LINKS TO CHANGES IN LARGE-SCALE CLIMATIC FORCINGS
A study of snow statistics over the past 50 years at several climatological stations in the Swiss Alps has highlighted periods in which snow was either abundant or not. Periods with relative low snowExpand
Mountain Climates and Climatic Change: An Overview of Processes Focusing on the European Alps
This contribution provides an overview of the intricacies of mountain climates, particularly as they pertain to the European Alps. Examples will be given of issues that are related to climatic changeExpand
