A multiregion model evaluation and attribution study of historical changes in the area affected by temperature and precipitation extremes

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


The skill of eight climate models in simulating the variability and trends in the observed areal extent of daily temperature and precipitation extremes is evaluated across five large-scale regions, using the climate extremes index (CEI) framework. Focusing on Europe, North America, Asia, Australia, and the Northern Hemisphere, results show that overall the models are generally able to simulate the decadal variability and trends of the observed temperature and precipitation components over the...[Show more]
