    Climate change scenarios: Climatic Research Unit information sheet 9

    Description
    This information sheet provides brief notes on future climate scenarios. These predictions are to be seen not as forecasts, but possible outcomes and have been generated using the three dimensional General Circulation Model (GCM). The information sheet provides images in the form of colour-scaled maps to show examples of future predictions for the UK as well as references and links to related websites. This is one of a series of information sheets from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, England.

    Modelling climate change: Climatic Research Unit information sheet 8

    Description
    This information sheet provides background information on Global Climate Models, also known as General Circulation Models (GCMs), the most complex of climate models, which attempt to represent the main components of the climate system in three dimensions. It introduces climate change experiments performed using GCMs. This is one of a series of information sheets from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, England.

    SOI/ENSO and their influence: Climatic Research Unit information sheet 12

    Description
    El Nino is an anomalous ocean-atmosphere system associated with fluctuations in ocean currents and surface temperatures. This information sheet explains how it can cause abnormal atmospheric and environmental conditions primarily in equatorial regions within the Pacific Basin, its causes, and consequences for rainfall and climatic conditions. Explanations of the Southern Oscillation Index and the Walker circulation are accompanied by illustrations and graphs. There are also bibliographic references. This is one of a series of information sheets from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, England.
