MUCCRI engages in packaging, communicating and disseminating climate change information, knowledge products and innovations to the wider public. A prime feature in our future training and research activities is to provide domestic and regional policy makers with the necessary scientific support, technology and guidance in mitigating and adapting to the impacts of climate change.
Attribution of extreme events is a challenging science and one that is currently undergoing considerable evolution. In this paper are 19 analyses by 18 different research groups, often using quite different methodologies, of 12 extreme events that occurred in 2012. In addition to investigating the causes of these extreme events, the multiple analyses of four of the events, the high temperatures in the United States, the record low levels of Arctic sea ice, and the heavy rain in northern Europe and eastern Australia, provide an opportunity to compare and contrast the strengths and weaknesses of the various methodologies.
