Robust attribution of human-induced thermodynamic and dynamic contributions in historical changes of regional heat and cold waves over Europe

Project description

The role of human intervention on the formation of cold waves

The thermodynamic effect of global warming is expected to increase warm event frequencies. But how do we explain the increased cold events? What are the roles of human activities – greenhouse gas emissions, aerosol emissions and land use or cover changes – in shaping cold events? The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) EXTREME project seeks to answer these questions. It will shed light on the contribution of warming-induced circulation changes. The aim will be to quantify human-induced thermodynamic and dynamic contributions in historical changes of regional heat and cold waves over Europe. The findings are expected to lift event attribution research to a regional scale, increasing confidence in attribution to human causes.
