Attributing observed Greenland responses to natural and anthropogenic climate forcings

Research supported by the NOAA Climate Program Office has recently been published in the journal Climate Dynamics. The paper by Andres and Peltier, "Attributing observed Greenland responses to natural and anthropogenic climate forcings," enhances our understanding of the contributions of anthropogenic forcing and natural variability to changing precipitation, increased surface temperatures, and subsequent melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
