As recounted by Beniston and Goyette (2007), “it has been assumed in numerous investigations related to climatic change that a warmer climate may also be a more variable climate (e.g., Katz and Brown, 1992; IPCC, 2001; Schar et al., 2004),” and in this regard they remark that “such statements are often supported by climate model results, as for example in the analysis of GCM and/or RCM simulated temperature and precipitation (Mearns et al., 1990, 1995) or in multiple-model simulations over Europe.” (more…)
