    The article discusses the impact of global warming on the winter season. It notes that due to global warming, winter have not been lasting as long and the snowmelt has been getting earlier since the mid-1980s. According to Jeffrey Masters, director of meteorology at The Weather Underground, an...

    We isolate the contribution of warming, other large-scale changes and soil moisture decline and feedbacks in driving future projected changes in daily precipitation across Europe. Our confidence in each of these mechanisms differs, so this analysis then allows us to determine an overall...

    Climate change includes not only changes in mean climate but also in weather extremes. For a few prominent heatwaves and heavy precipitation events a human contribution to their occurrence has been demonstrated. Here we apply a similar framework but estimate what fraction of all globally...

    An increasing trend in global streamflow has been variously attributed to global warming, land use, and a reduction in plant transpiration under higher CO2 levels. To separate these influences for the coterminous United States, we use a set of over 1000 United States Geological Survey stream...

    The question is investigated how far global warming in the period 1901–2003 will affect the region of Europe. For this purpose, changes of the climate zones that exist according to Koeppen will be analysed. The trends and outliers in terms of expansion and location of individual climate...

    Variations and trends in extreme climate events are more sensitive to climate change than the mean values, and so have received much attention. In this study, twelve indices of temperature extremes and 11 indices of precipitation extremes at 32 meteorological stations in Hengduan Mountains were...
