Reliable attribution and projection of extreme heat events altered by human influence on the climate

Abstract:

Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are now well-understood to be causing damaging changes to the climate. One of the many ways in which the climate is changing is through extreme weather events. Given the severe consequences of such events, understanding how human influence on the climate is affecting them is vital. This is the aim of the young field of 'extreme event attribution'. There now exist many established methods for attributing individual weather events to climate change, from p...
