    • Amplified warming of seasonal cold extremes relative to the mean in the Northern Hemisphere extratropics 

      Gross, Mia H.; Donat, Markus G.; Alexander, Lisa V.; Sherwood, Steven C. (Copernicus Publications, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      Cold extremes are anticipated to warm at a faster rate than both hot extremes and average temperatures for much of the Northern Hemisphere. Anomalously warm cold extremes can affect numerous sectors, including human health, ...
    • Changes in observed daily precipitation over global land areas since 1950 

      Contractor, Steefan; Donat, Markus; Alexander, Lisa V. (American Meteorological Society, 2021)
      Article
      Open Access
      Estimates of observed long-term changes in daily precipitation globally have been limited due to availability of high-quality observations. In this study, a new gridded dataset of daily precipitation, called Rainfall ...
    • Development of an updated global land in situ‐based data set of temperature and precipitation extremes: HadEX3 

      Dunn, Rober J.

      Article
      Open Access
      We present the second update to a data set of gridded land‐based temperature and precipitation extremes indices: HadEX3. This consists of 17 temperature and 12 precipitation indices derived from daily, in situ observations ...
    • Drivers and impacts of the most extreme marine heatwaves events 

      Sen Gupta, Alex; Thomsen, Mads; Benthuysen, Jessica A.; Hobday, Alistair J.; Oliver, Eric; Alexander, Lisa V.; Burrows, Michael T.; Donat, Markus; Feng, Ming; Holbrook, Neil J.; Perkins-Kirkpatrick, Sarah; Moore, Pippa J.; Rodrigues, Regina R.; Scannell, Hillary A.; Taschetto, Andréa S.; Ummenhofer, Caroline C.; Wernberg, Thomas; Smale, Dan A. (Springer Nature, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      Prolonged high-temperature extreme events in the ocean, marine heatwaves, can have severe and long-lasting impacts on marine ecosystems, fisheries and associated services. This study applies a marine heatwave framework to ...
    • Intercomparison of annual precipitation indices and extremes over global land areas from in situ, space-based and reanalysis products 

      Alexander, Lisa V.; Bador, Margot; Roca, Rémy; Contractor, Steefan; Donat, Markus; Nguyen, Phuong Loan (IOP Publishing Ltd, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      A range of in situ, satellite and reanalysis products on a common daily 1° × 1° latitude/longitude grid were extracted from the Frequent Rainfall Observations on Grids database to help facilitate intercomparison and analysis ...
    • Projected marine heatwaves in the 21st century and the potential for ecological impact 

      Oliver, Eric C. J.; Burrows, Michael T.; Donat, Markus; Gupta, Alex Sen; Alexander, Lisa V.; Perkins-Kirkpatrick, Sarah E.; Benthuysen, Jessica A.; Hobday, Alistair J.; Holbrook, Neil J.; Moore, Pippa J.; Thomsen, Mads S.; Wernberg, Thomas; Smale, Dan A. (Frontiers, 2019)
      Article
      Open Access
      Marine heatwaves (MHWs) are extreme climatic events in oceanic systems that can have devastating impacts on ecosystems, causing abrupt ecological changes and socioeconomic consequences. Several prominent MHWs have attracted ...
