Different indicators change in different ways, but climate models project a clear trend of increasing heat stress.
Increased reflection of incoming sunlight by clouds led one current-generation climate model to predict unrealistically cold temperatures during the last ice age.
Climate sensitivity can be estimated using multiple variables jointly in a multi-component linear regression.
New climate projections could inform long-term wildfire and water resources management strategies in California and Nevada.
A comparison of climate models finds that much of the variation in their predictions of global warming arises from differences in how they simulate the response of convective processes to warming.
Analysis of temperature and precipitation extremes in two generations of CMIP climate models revealed similarities in regional climate sensitivities, contrasting with divergent global sensitivities.
Stratospheric ozone depletion between 1979 and 2010 resulted in a slight decrease of ozone in the troposphere during that period despite increased ozone production from anthropogenic emissions.
Charged by thunderstorms and other weather phenomena, the global electrical circuit connects the entire planet.
Compared with previous generations, current Earth system models predict that Earth’s climate is more sensitive to carbon dioxide. Where does the increased sensitivity come from?
