  • Robust Multiyear Climate Impacts of Volcanic Eruptions in Decadal Prediction Systems 

    Hermanson, Leon; Bilbao, Roberto; Dunstone, Nick; Ménégoz, Martin; Ortega Montilla, Pablo; Pohlmann, Holger; Robson, Jon I; Smith, Doug M.; Strand, Gary; Timmreck, Claudia; Yeager, Steve; Danabasoglu, Gokhan (Wiley, 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    Major tropical volcanic eruptions have a large impact on climate, but there have only been three major eruptions during the recent relatively well‐observed period. Models are therefore an important tool to understand and ...
  • Recipes for How to Force Oceanic Model Dynamics 

    Renault, Lionel; Masson, Sebastien; Arsouze, Thomas; McWilliams, James C. (American Geophysical Union, 2019)
    Article
    Open Access
    The current feedback to the atmosphere (CFB) contributes to the oceanic circulation by damping eddies. In an ocean‐atmosphere coupled model, CFB can be correctly accounted for by using the wind relative to the oceanic ...
  • Climate drivers of the 2017 devastating fires in Portugal 

    Turco, Marco; Jerez, Sonia; Augusto, Sofia; Tarín Carrasco, Patricia; Ratola, Nuno; Jiménez Guerrero, Pedro; Trigo, Ricardo M. (Springer Nature, 2019)
    Article
    Open Access
    A record 500,000 hectares burned in Portugal during the extreme wildfire season of 2017, with more than 120 human lives lost. Here we analyse the climatic factors responsible for the burned area (BA) from June to October ...
  • Changes in temperature extremes on the Tibetan Plateau and their attribution 

    Yin, Hong; Sun, Ying; Donat, Markus (IOP Publishing Ltd, 2019-11-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    The Tibetan Plateau (TP) is the largest and highest upland on Earth. Warming on the TP is faster than that in surrounding areas. Evaluating our understanding of the causes behind these changes provides a test of tools used ...
  • Northern Hemisphere blocking simulation in current climate models: evaluating progress from the Climate Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 to 6 and sensitivity to resolution 

    Schiemann, Reinhard; Athanasiadis, Panos; Barriopedro, David; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco; Lohmann, Katja; Roberts, Malcolm J.; Sein, Dmitry V.; Roberts, Christopher D.; Terray, Laurent; Vidale, Pier Luigi (Copernicus Publications, 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    Global climate models (GCMs) are known to suffer from biases in the simulation of atmospheric blocking, and this study provides an assessment of how blocking is represented by the latest generation of GCMs. It is evaluated ...
  • CALIOPE-Urban v1.0: coupling R-LINE with a mesoscale air quality modelling system for urban air quality forecasts over Barcelona city (Spain) 

    Benavides, Jaime; Snyder, Michelle; Guevara, Marc; Soret, Albert; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos; Amato, Fulvio; Querol, Xavier; Jorba Casellas, Oriol (Copernicus Publications, 2019)
    Article
    Open Access
    he NO2 annual air quality limit value is systematically exceeded in many European cities. In this context, understanding human exposure, improving policy and planning, and providing forecasts requires the development of ...
  • How to create an operational multi-model of seasonal forecasts? 

    Hemri, Stephan; Bhend, Jonas; Liniger, Mark A.; Manzanas, Rodrigo; Siegert, Stefan; Stephenson, David B.; Gutiérrez, José M.; Brookshaw, Anca; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (Springer Link, 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    Seasonal forecasts of variables like near-surface temperature or precipitation are becoming increasingly important for a wide range of stakeholders. Due to the many possibilities of recalibrating, combining, and verifying ...
  • Summer predictions of Arctic sea ice edge in multi-model seasonal re-forecasts 

    Batté, Laurianne; Välisuo, Ilona; Chevallier, Matthieu; Acosta Navarro, Juan Camilo; Ortega Montilla, Pablo; Smith, Doug (Springer Link, 2020)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this study, the forecast quality of 1993–2014 summer seasonal predictions of five global coupled models, of which three are operational seasonal forecasting systems contributing to the Copernicus Climate Change Service ...
  • Dust emission from crusted surfaces: Insights from field measurements and modelling 

    Klose, Martina; Gill, Thomas E.; Etyemezian, Vicken; Nikolich, George; Zadeh, Zahra Ghodsi; Webb, Nicholas P.; Pelt, R. Scott, Van (Elsevier, 2019-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Crusted surfaces can be major sources of mineral dust emission. Quantitative understanding of dust emission from crusted surfaces is limited, because (1) theories on dust emission are not well tested for such surfaces; and ...
  • Who is connected with whom? A social network analysis of institutional interactions in the european CCA and DRR landscape 

    Karali, Eleni; Bojovic, Dragana; Michaleck, Gabriela; Giupponi, Carlo; Schwarze, Reimund (MDPI, 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    Communication and collaboration are critical for designing and implementing responses to climate change impacts and related disasters. This acknowledgement has increased interest in understanding social and institutional ...
  • 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 ...
  • HERMESv3, a stand-alone multi-scale atmospheric emission modelling framework – part 2: the bottom–up module
