  • Anthropogenic climate change detected in European renewable freshwater resources
    true
    Anthropogenic climate change detected in European renewable freshwater resourcesNature Climate Change, Published online: 16 October 2017; doi:10.1038/nclimate3416Changes in European river flow have amplified the dry-south–wet-north contrast. Model simulations show that anthropogenic climate change accounts for this change with strong decreases in the Mediterranean and weak increases in northern Europe.... Read more »
  • Weakening of the North American monsoon with global warming
    true
    Weakening of the North American monsoon with global warmingNature Climate Change, Published online: 9 October 2017; doi:10.1038/nclimate3412Past studies suggest the North American monsoon will weaken in the future. Correcting for model sea-surface temperature biases, however, reveals a reduction in monsoon-related precipitation due to increased atmospheric stability.... Read more »
  • Habitat-based conservation strategies cannot compensate for climate-change-induced range loss
    true
    Habitat-based conservation strategies cannot compensate for climate-change-induced range lossNature Climate Change, Published online: 9 October 2017; doi:10.1038/nclimate3414Distribution modelling of vascular plants, butterflies and grasshoppers in central Europe suggests that habitat-based conservation strategies will be insufficient to save species from regional extinction under twenty-first-century climate change....

  • The appeasement effect of a United Nations climate summit on the German public
    true
    The appeasement effect of a United Nations climate summit on the German publicNature Climate Change, Published online: 9 October 2017; doi:10.1038/nclimate3409As a global media event, COP 21 had the potential to enhance understanding and motivate political action. This study shows that although media coverage reached the German public and promoted... Read more »
  • Coral bleaching pathways under the control of regional temperature variability
    true
    Coral bleaching pathways under the control of regional temperature variabilityNature Climate Change, Published online: 2 October 2017; doi:10.1038/nclimate3399The bleaching threat to coral reefs from warming is increasing, but risk locations are not clear. This study relates regional sea surface temperature variability to bleaching sensitivity and the future risk to coral... Read more »
  • Potential volcanic impacts on future climate variability
    true
    Potential volcanic impacts on future climate variabilityNature Climate Change, Published online: 2 October 2017; doi:10.1038/nclimate3394Projections of future climate do not typically include the effects of volcanic activity. By incorporating a range of volcanic futures into a coupled model, it is shown that volcanic forcing has quantifiable impacts on the time at... Read more »
  • Progress in climate modelling
    true
    Progress in climate modellingNature Climate Change, Published online: 29 September 2017; doi:10.1038/nclimate3398Development and planning for the sixth phase of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) has been years in the making. Nature Climate Change speaks to the Chair of the CMIP Panel, Veronika Eyring, about the aims and projected outcomes... Read more »
