      Myhre, Gunnar; Samset, Bjørn Hallvard; Mohr, Christian Wilhelm; Alterskjær, Kari; Balkanski, Yves; Bellouin, Nicolas; Chin, Mian; Haywood, James; Hodnebrog, Øivind; Kinne, Stefan; Lin, Guangxing; Lund, Marianne Tronstad; Penner, Joyce E.; Schulz, Michael; Schutgens, Nick; Skeie, Ragnhild Bieltvedt; Stier, Philip; Takemura, Toshihiko; Zhang, Kai (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The radiative forcing of the aerosol–radiation interaction can be decomposed into clear-sky and cloudy-sky portions. Two sets of multi-model simulations within Aerosol Comparisons between Observations and Models (AeroCom), ...
    • Frequency of extreme precipitation increases extensively with event rareness under global warming 

      Myhre, Gunnar; Alterskjær, Kari; Stjern, Camilla Weum; Hodnebrog, Øivind; Marelle, Louis; Samset, Bjørn Hallvard; Sillmann, Jana; Schaller, Nathalie; Fischer, Erich; Schulz, Michael; Stohl, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The intensity of the heaviest extreme precipitation events is known to increase with global warming. How often such events occur in a warmer world is however less well established, and the combined effect of changes in ...
    • Strong impacts on aerosol indirect effects from historical oxidant changes 

      Karset, Inger Helene H.; Berntsen, Terje Koren; Storelvmo, Trude; Alterskjær, Kari; Grini, Alf; Oliviè, Dirk Jan Leo; Kirkevåg, Alf; Seland, Øyvind; Iversen, Trond; Schulz, Michael (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
    • Understanding model diversity in future precipitation projections for South America 

      Hodnebrog, Øivind; Steensen, Birthe Marie Rødssæteren; Marelle-Sebrechts, Louis; Alterskjær, Kari; Dalsøren, Stig Bjørløw; Myhre, Gunnar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Precipitation patterns are expected to change in the future climate, affecting humans through a number of factors. Global climate models (GCM) are our best tools for projecting large-scale changes in climate, but they ...
    • Urbanization in megacities increases the frequency of extreme precipitation events far more than their intensity 

      Marelle-Sebrechts, Louis; Myhre, Gunnar; Steensen, Birthe Marie Rødssæteren; Hodnebrog, Øivind; Alterskjær, Kari; Sillmann, Jana (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      More than half of the world's population lives in urban areas (UN Population Division 2018 The World's cities in 2018 (UN: New York)), which are especially vulnerable to climate extremes (Field et al 2012 Managing the Risks ...
