A multiregion assessment of observed changes in the areal extent of temperature and precipitation extremes

Dittus, Andrea J.; Karoly, David J; Lewis (previously Bretherton), Sophie; Alexander, Lisa


This study examines trends in the area affected by temperature and precipitation extremes across five largescale regions using the climate extremes index (CEI) framework. Analyzing changes in temperature and precipitation extremes in terms of areal fraction provides information from a different perspective and can be useful for climate monitoring. Trends in five temperature and precipitation components are analyzed, calculated using a new method based on standard extreme indices. These...[Show more]
