Assessment of observed daily temperature and precipitation extremes

Topics: ,
Current interest in extreme weather events is motivated by the vulnerability of our society to the impacts of such events. The supposed increase in the occurence of extremes and the concern about anthropogenic climate change focuses attention on trends in extremes accompanying ‘global warming’. IPCC (2001) concludes that ‘most of the observed warming over the last 50 years is likely to have been due to the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations’. Yet, knowledge of changes in the occurrence of extremes is still limited.
