Different approaches can be applied in order to perform an attribution study of extreme weather and climate events. Far from being exclusive, all of these approaches are complementary and contribute
On the role of sulfates in recent global warming: a Granger causality analysis
Attribution studies clearly show that the recent global warming is mainly linked with changes in atmospheric composition induced by human activities, especially by emissions of greenhouse gases
Sensitivity of summer precipitation over the Korean Peninsula to temperature gradients
The warm‐season hydroclimatology stemming primarily from the monsoon and typhoons in East Asia is an important determinant of sustainable water supplies for coupled human and natural systems.
Vegetation change in the northwestern Putorana Plateau (North Siberia, Russia) during the Late Holocene inferred from pollen spectra
Northern Siberia is well suited as a source for different climatic archives, due to its isolation and therefore minor, anthropogenic influences. It is common that even small global temperature
Rapid systematic assessment of the detection and attribution of regional anthropogenic climate change
Deployment of the method on 116 regional assessments of recent temperature and precipitation changes indicates that existing rules of thumb concerning the detectability of climate change ignore the full range of sources of uncertainty, most particularly the importance of adequate observational monitoring.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Recent Work Title The challenge to detect and attribute effects of climate change on human and natural systems Permalink
Anthropogenic climate change has triggered impacts on natural and human systems world-wide, yet the formal scientific method of detection and attribution has been only insufficiently described.
The challenge to detect and attribute effects of climate change on human and natural systems
This paper describes the current conceptual framework of the field and outlines a number of conceptual challenges and proposes workable cross-disciplinary definitions, concepts, and standards to facilitate integrated assessment of the detection and attribution of climate change impacts.
Web Based Integrated Models for Participatory Planning
An integrated assessment model that embeds the web dimension and aims at increasing awareness in society, especially on environmental issues is developed, capable of promoting participatory planning procedures in dealing with environmental problems.
Tropospheric temperature trends: history of an ongoing controversy
Changes in atmospheric temperature have a particular importance in climate research because climate models consistently predict a distinctive vertical profile of trends. With increasing greenhouse


Modeling climate change: An assessment of sea ice and surface albedo feedbacks
The net strength of the sea ice and surface albedo feedbacks in simulations of climate change has been estimated for several general circulation models (GCMs) using a variety of methods. Here several
Radiosonde temperature data from 147 stations in the Northern Hemisphere for the period 1964-85 have been used to investigate recent temperature trends in the troposphere and lower stratosphere.
Optimal weighting of data to detect climatic change: Application to the carbon dioxide problem
Increasing carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere is expected to lead to warming of the surface of the earth. Detection of the warming is difficult because it must be distinguished from
Testing the Global Warming Hypothesis
The temperature record for the global surface air temperature indicates that six of the warmest years occurred in the period 1980–1988. Here we address the question on the likelihood that such an
The correlation of tropospheric and stratospheric temperatures and its effect on the detection of climate changes
Based on 42 years of seasonal mean temperature anomalies of the tropospheric and stratosphere in De Bilt, the Netherlands, the authors find that the tropospheric and lower stratospheric temperatures
Detection of changes in the global troposphere temperature field induced by greenhouse gases
Several approaches to detecting the existence of a theoretically predicted CO2-induced signal in the global temperature field are investigated. It appears that a relatively thin network of observing
Climate sensitivity due to increased CO2: experiments with a coupled atmosphere and ocean general circulation model
A version of the National Center for Atmospheric Research community climate model — a global, spectral (R15) general circulation model — is coupled to a coarse-grid (5° latitude-] longitude,
Detecting changes in global climate induced by greenhouse gases
A quantitative search for a theoretically predicted CO2 signal in surface air temperature data extending back to 1899 was marginally successful in a statistical sense. However, the nature of the
