    • Weakening of the Atlantic Niño variability under global warming 

      Rodriguez Crespo, Lander; Prigent, Arthur; Keenlyside, Noel Sebastian; Koseki, Shunya; Svendsen, Lea; Richter, Ingo; Sánchez-Gómez, Emilia (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      The Atlantic Niño is one of the most important patterns of interannual tropical climate variability, but how climate change will influence this pattern is not well known due to large climate model biases. Here we show that ...
    • Why has Precipitation Increased in the Last 120 Years in Norway? 

      Konstali, Kjersti; Sorteberg, Asgeir (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
