Hi,

There's been a bunch of publications and news items about the project and our research in the last week - here's the rundown:

Blog by our science coordinator, Dr Friederike Otto, about our new World Weather Attribution project with Climate Central:

New publication in Climatic Change by Dr Otto and others on the team about extreme summer rainfall events in England and Wales:
http://www.climateprediction.net/new-publication-about-extreme-summer-rainfall-in-england-and-wales/

In the summer of 2007 England and Wales experienced very heavy flooding. Summer precipitation and subsequently flooding are harder to model than winter or autumn rainfall and this recent publication highlights this again. We look at different possible drivers of high precipitation in summer and do not find a conclusive signal apart for the July precipitation which might have been exacerbated due to anthropogenic forcing. However, the focus of the paper is not so much the attribution of the extreme precipitation to external climate drivers but the quantification of the uncertainties involved in such a study. The paper is part of a special issue dedicated to exactly these issues which will soon be published in full.

Article in the Independent about the new World Weather Attribution project:

Article about our collaboration with Oregon State University on extreme weather event attribution in the Western USA:

Keep an eye on the Environmental Change Institute website to see Prof Myles Allen's lecture about human influence on the climte that he gave this morning:
