Description:

Objective:

This project applies statistical techniques to analyze global climate model simulations of present-day and future atmospheric circulation patterns and their relationship to surface climate, in order to determine likely impacts from future climate change.

Here, we summarize the key research questions addressed by this project, briefly describe our findings in each area, present on-going research avenues, and list the presentations and submitted journal articles that have resulted from the various components of this project to date.
