A Bayesian climate change detection using multi-model ensembles

PI: Seung-Ki Min
Institution: Meteorological Institute, University of Bonn
Additional Investigators: Andreas Hense
Abstract:
The objective of this research is to search for anthropogenic and/or natural signals in the observed global and regional climate changes with the help of Bayesian statistics considering internal variability and inter-model uncertainties. Using a Bayesian decision method for climate change signal analysis developed by Min et al. (2004, 2005), we will compare monthly near-surface temperatures from the 20C3M and PIcntrl runs with observations. Possibly our approach will be extended into 3-D temperature field or other variables such as sea level pressure.
