Comparison of Modeled and Observed Changes in Indices of Daily Climate Extremes

PI: Dmitry Kiktev
Additional Investigators: E.Ran'kova, M.Bardin
Results of IPCC models runs with various forcing combinations will be used to estimate the antropogenic effect on recent changes in temperature and precipitation extremes. The use of a variety of climate models will allow us to address some of the issues surrounding model uncertainty. Newly available near-global observational datasets of temperature and precipitation extremes
will be used for objective comparison with modeled data.
