Linda van Garderen, Frauke Feser, and Theodore G. Shepherd

Data sets

CMIP6 Scenario MIP DKRZ MPI-ESM1-2-HR historical - RCM-forcing data M. Schupfner

Short summary
The storyline method is used to quantify the effect of climate change on a particular extreme weather event using a global atmospheric model by simulating the event with and without climate change. We present the method and its successful application for the climate change signals of the European 2003 and the Russian 2010 heatwaves.
