On the Average Value of Correlated Time Series, with Applications in Dendroclimatology and Hydrometeorology
Abstract In a number of areas of applied climatology, time series are either averaged to enhance a common underlying signal or combined to produce area averages. How well, then, does the average of aExpand

Economic and environmental choices in the stabilization of atmospheric CO2 concentrations
THE ultimate goal of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is to achieve "stabilization of greenhouse-gas concentrations at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interferenceExpand

Northern Hemisphere Surface Air Temperature Variations: 1851–1984
Abstract A new compilation of monthly mean surface air temperature for the Northern Hemisphere for 1851–1984 is presented based on land-based meteorological station data and fixed-position weatherExpand

Implications for climate and sea level of revised IPCC emissions scenarios
A new set of greenhouse gas emissions scenarios has been produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Incorporating these into models that also include the effects of C02Expand

Spatial patterns of precipitation in England and Wales and a revised
The spatial patterns of precipitation variability over the United Kingdom are examined for the period 1861–1970 using principal components analysis. Most of the variance (around 50 per cent) isExpand

A search for human influences on the thermal structure of the atmosphere
The observed spatial patterns of temperature change in the free atmosphere from 1963 to 1987 are similar to those predicted by state-of-the-art climate models incorporating various combinations ofExpand

Coal to gas: the influence of methane leakage
Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel combustion may be reduced by using natural gas rather than coal to produce energy. Gas produces approximately half the amount of CO2 per unit ofExpand

Obtaining sub-grid-scale information from coarse-resolution general circulation model output
The relationships between local temperature and precipitation and large-scale climate are explored using regression analysis. The motivation for this study is the need of the impact analyst forExpand

Thermal expansion of sea water associated with global warming
The relationship between greenhouse-gas forcing, global mean temperature change and sea-level rise due to thermal expansion of the oceans is investigated using upwelling–diffusion and pure diffusionExpand
