21st Century Projections of North Atlantic Tropical Storms from CMIP5 Models
Description: North Atlantic tropical storms (TS) are a major climate hazard to North America, and have exhibited variability and change on decadal timescales. Therefore, understanding and predicting future decadal TS activity on decadal timescales is highly relevant to society. In this study researchers use a novel statistical tropical storm frequency model to identify the dominant sources of uncertainty in projections of future decadal TS frequency.
