The upward evolution of temperatures in the Antarctic Peninsula has weakened and even reversed in the last two decades. Due to the long-term variability of the region it is not easy to assess whether observed recent cooling trends are consistent with the internal variability or not. For this reason, in this paper we assess the robustness of the trends by analyzing their sensitivity with respect to the choice of time period selected. Every possible temperature trend in the 1958-2016 interval has… 


Long-term persistence enhances uncertainty about anthropogenic warming of Antarctica
Previous estimates of the strength and the uncertainty of the observed Antarctic temperature trends assumed that the natural annual temperature fluctuations can be represented by an auto-regressive
Recent regional climate cooling on the Antarctic Peninsula and associated impacts on the cryosphere.
Recent Rapid Regional Climate Warming on the Antarctic Peninsula
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) confirmed that mean global warming was 0.6 ± 0.2 °C during the 20th century and cited anthropogenic increases in greenhouse gases as the likely
Climate change and precipitation trends in the northern Mediterranean
According to climate projections for the end of the twenty-first century, regional responses to global warming include a strong and widespread drying over the northern Mediterranean, particularly
Significant reduction of cold temperature extremes at Faraday/Vernadsky station in the Antarctic Peninsula
This study examines the daily observed temperature at the Faraday/Vernadsky station in the Antarctic Peninsula for the period February 1947 through January 2011. Faraday/Vernadsky is experiencing a
Recent variability and trends of Antarctic near‐surface temperature
[1] A new monthly 1° × 1° Antarctic near-surface temperature reconstruction for 1960–2005 is presented. The use of numerical model fields to establish spatial relationships between fifteen continuous
Absence of 21st century warming on Antarctic Peninsula consistent with natural variability
Decadal temperature changes in this region are not primarily associated with the drivers of global temperature change but, rather, reflect the extreme natural internal variability of the regional atmospheric circulation.
An assessment and interpretation of the observed warming of West Antarctica in the austral spring
We synthesize variability and trends in multiple analyses of Antarctic near-surface temperature representing several independent source datasets and spatially complete reconstructions, and place
Multidecadal climate variability over northern France during the past 500 years and its relation to large‐scale atmospheric circulation
We examine secular changes and multidecadal climate variability on a seasonal scale in northern France over the last 500 years and examine the extent to which they are driven by large‐scale
Ice core evidence for significant 100‐year regional warming on the Antarctic Peninsula
We present a new 150‐year, high‐resolution, stable isotope record (δ18O) from the Gomez ice core, drilled on the data sparse south western Antarctic Peninsula, revealing a ∼2.7°C rise in surface
