Variations 2015 Summer Edition

The slowdown in the rate of global mean surface temperature warming over the past 15 years or so has arguably led to one of the most contentious debates in the climate community. In fact, some argue there is no "hiatus." The latest edition of the newsletter, Understanding the Earth's Climate Warming Hiatus: Putting the pieces together, features six articles providing various perspectives on the controversial topic.

Take a questionnaire on climate processes for model development

Over a decade ago, US CLIVAR developed the concept of Climate Process Teams to improve the fidelity of coupled climate models by facilitating the transfer of knowledge from observational and process-oriented research to the development of models. Now we are seeking input to assess the need for renewing such future efforts. Responses to the questionaire are due June 19.
