Modeling Daily Intense Rainfall Events over Africa: “State-of-the-art climate models still cannot realistically simulate daily intense rainfall events with high accuracy.”
Modeling Caribbean Precipitation: How Well Is It Being Done?: Both CMIP3 and CMIP5 models still have some perplexing problems that need to be resolved.
Dying From Heat in New York City: Petkova et al.’s discovery that the excess mortality originally experienced at high temperatures was substantially reduced over the course of the century they studied is indicative, in their words, of “population adaptation to heat in recent decades.” (more…)
