Robust future changes in temperature variability under greenhouse gas forcing and the relationship with thermal advection

Article English OPEN
Holmes, Caroline R.; Woollings, Tim; Hawkins, Ed; de Vries, Hylke;

Recent temperature extremes have highlighted the importance of assessing projected changes in the variability of temperature as well as the mean. A large fraction of present day temperature variance is associated with thermal advection, as anomalous winds blow across th... View more
