Objective estimation of the probability density function for climate sensitivity
The size and impacts of anthropogenically induced climate change (AICC) strongly depend on the climate sensitivity, ΔT2x. If ΔT2x is less than the lower bound given by the Intergovernmental Panel onExpand

Model projections of rapid sea-level rise on the northeast coast of the United States
Human-induced climate change is expected to cause sea-level rise globally as well as regionally. An analysis of state-of-the-art climate models indicates that the northeastern US coast isExpand
